The Color of Law

The Katie Lance Podcast Episode 081

In today’s podcast we are going to talk about housing segregation and how that impacts our lives to this day. I am honored to share this important interview with Richard Rothstein. Richard is A Distinguished Fellow of The Economic Policy Institute, and a Senior Fellow at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. He is also the author of THE COLOR OF LAW: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America.

I was thrilled and honored for this opportunity to interview Richard. I hope you will take some time to listen to this important information. I also would encourage you, especially if you are in the real estate industry, to pick up a copy of Richard’s book at the link below.

Topics we covered:

  • The history of housing segregation in the United States
  • Systemic racism and actions by our government that perpetuated housing inequality
  • The Fair Housing Act
  • National Association of Realtors’ Code of Ethics
  • The role of schools and education in housing segregation
