Alliance Housing, Inc., Plymouth Congregational Church, the Hennepin History Museum and Align Minneapolis have rescheduled an evening with Richard Rothstein that was cancelled due to the pandemic in early 2020. Rothstein and the event will be live on video chat on April 21st at 7pm. He will discuss his book The Color of Law. Racial segregation characterizes every metropolitan area in the U.S. and bears responsibility for our most serious social and economic problems – it corrupts our criminal justice system, exacerbates economic inequality, and produces large academic gaps between white and African American schoolchildren. Alliance hopes Professor Rothstein’s talk helps illuminate a better understanding of who is poor, homeless and the lives of Alliance tenants.
