The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America

Adam Grupper takes listeners Behind the Mic to talk about his narration of THE COLOR OF LAW, Richard Rothstein’s examination of discriminatory laws limiting housing for African-Americans. A former New York Times columnist and research associate at the Economic Policy Institute, Rothstein details disturbing evidence.

“For me, this was a deeply infuriating and deeply disturbing book. I hope it will have as profound an impact on you as it had on me.”—Narrator Adam Grupper
