Purchase The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein

Rothstein's book is not only a vital history of racial discrimination, but essential to understanding the current housing crisis in the District and the region. The District of Columbia is becoming increasingly racially segregated and decent affordable housing is in short supply. As with the government practices described in Color of Law, the increase in racial housing segregation we face today is the result of deliberate governmental policies and practices. The Washington Lawyers' Committee works to ensure housing equity and choice.
