The Color of Law recounted how government at all levels created segregation. Just Action describes how we can begin to undo it. This book was chosen by the Berkeley Public Library’s Racial Justice Advisory Group (RJAG) as the second in a series of “all staff reads." Books will be available for sale at the event. At the end of the talk there will be a Q&A session. Please email your questions ahead of time to

We will be giving away copies of the book at every library location starting Monday, 10/23. Available while supplies last. 

This event will take place at the Black Repertory Group Theater, 3201 Adeline Street (about a 10 minute walk from the Tarea Hall Pittman South Branch and right next to Ashby BART).

Leah Rothstein’s expertise in the full range of housing policy stems from more than two decades of experience as a consultant to affordable housing developers and local governments and as a community and union organizer. She lives in Oakland, in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Richard Rothstein, the author of The Color of Law and father to co-author Leah Rothstein, has written many books and articles on educational policy and racial inequality. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
