Events at the Newton Free Library: Richard Rothstein, The Color of Law

This program is part of Overdue: Confronting Race and Racism in Newton, a city-wide read and series of events and conversations on race and racism.

In, The Color of Law, A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America, national best selling author Richard Rothstein argues with exacting precision and fascinating insight how segregation in America is the byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state and federal levels. Join us for a virtual plenary session with Mr. Rothstein.

Following the plenary, a community member will speak about how the building of the Mass Pike devistated Newton's historic African-American neighborhood that was known as "The Village." A representative of the Planning Department will then give an overview of Newton's zoning. Attendees will come away with a deeper understanding of the systemic issues that contribute current housing inequities, particularly as Newton engages in a comprehensive review of its zoning codes.
