THE COLOR OF LAW A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Adam Grupper

Contemporary Culture • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

With confidence and clarity, narrator Adam Grupper describes discriminatory laws governing the actions of the Federal Housing Administration, Department of Education, Department of Veterans Affairs, and other government agencies that have shaped African-Americans' ability to gain wealth, health, education, and voting power, not merely in the past but in the present day. Author Richard Rothstein provides ample evidence that segregation isn't DE FACTO ("natural") but the result of DE JURE discrimination: Laws at the local, state, and federal level in direct conflict with the Fourteenth Amendment have shaped the past and present world in which we live. While not easy listening, THE COLOR OF LAW is compelling and convincing--and maybe even essential. K.W.
