book cover of "the color of law"Selected text and guiding questions

The final session of our BCMM Antiracist Book Club will take place Thursday, December 9th, from 4:10-5pm.

For this session, we will discuss portions of The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein (chapters 1, 2, 6, 9, 12, Epilogue)

Discussion questions:

  • After reading some chapters from this book, how did the history of housing segregation surprise you? Was this history you already knew?
  • What are some difficulties in undoing residential segregation? What can we do now?

Get reimbursed for purchasing the book

To enable all interested BCMM members to participate and to support attendees to purchase the book from a local or black-owned business, we have set aside funds to reimburse BCMM members for the cost to purchase the book.

Submit your reimbursement request via the reimbursement request form. The deadline for submitting reimbursement requests is 5 days after the session discussion. Priority will be given to trainees, staff, and junior faculty who purchase the book in any format (hard copy, digital, or audio book) and those that purchase the book from a local or black-owned bookstore.
