“The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America”

The federal government has often been painted as standing in the way of the segregationist policies of individual states. But as Richard Rothstein, senior fellow at the Haas Institute at the University of California at Berkeley and a distinguished fellow at the Economic Policy Institute, reminds us that segregation was the plotted and conscious policy of the highest levels of government.
