Speak Up/Speak Out: Conversations About Race
Tuesday, March 23
2-3 p.m.

Join us for virtual community conversations as we continue to discuss race and social justice in Columbus and in America.

Each month we’re choosing a book, article, movie or music selection from our collection to experience and reflect upon together. 

Our moderators and panelists are community leaders who strive to speak up and speak out to address institutional and systemic inequities that face our communities.

March Selection: "The Color of Law" by Richard Rothstein  
Genre:  Adult nonfiction (2017)
Check it out: Available in Book, eBook or eAudiobook 

In The Color of Law, Rothstein describes how American cities became so racially divided through federal, state and local governments that systematically imposed residential segregation that includes racial zoning, public housing that segregated previously mixed communities, subsidies for builders to create whites-only suburbs, tax exemptions for institutions that enforced segregation and support for violent resistance to African Americans in white neighborhoods - policies that influence tragedies in places like Ferguson and Baltimore.

This “powerful and disturbing history” exposes how American governments deliberately imposed racial segregation on metropolitan areas nationwide.
-New York Times book review, June 2017
