We warmly invite you to a free, one-night only public lecture by acclaimed author Richard Rothstein, whose book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America details how segregation in America is the byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state, and federal levels. Dr. Rothstein’s lecture, based on his book, is free and open to the public; and is scheduled for 7:30 pm, February 13, 2018, in Transylvania University’s Carrick Auditorium. There will be a Question and Answer period following the lecture, as well as a public reception and book signing in the Morlan Gallery. Wild Fig Books and Coffee will be selling copies of The Color of Law at the event. This event is co-sponsored by Lexington Community Land Trust, a nonprofit affordable housing provider in Lexington; and Lexington Fair Housing Council, who seek to end housing discrimination in the Bluegrass.
