Renowned Author Richard Rothstein visited TUC on February 5th.
In his presentation and in his book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America, Richard Rothstein explodes the myth that America's cities came to be racially divided

income differences, or the actions of institutions like banks and real estate agencies.
