The Color of Law

Emerging Leaders Program Event

“Color of Law” Discussion

Wednesday, November 2

All Day Event


Richard Rothstein is a Distinguished Fellow of the Economic Policy Institute and a Senior Fellow (emeritus) at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. He is the author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America, which recovers a forgotten history of how federal, state, and local policy explicitly segregated metropolitan areas nationwide, creating racially homogenous neighborhoods in patterns that violate the Constitution and require remediation. 

Emerging Leaders will read the book in advance and be prepared to discuss how the principles have affected real estate in Atlanta and in our Association and how we can work to rectify the mistakes of the past.

Please note, exact date in November and location to be determined.

This program is only open to the 2022 Emerging Leaders Program participants.
