NCJWSTL Wine & Wisdom Book Club: Housing Inequality

April 28 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Come learn and socialize with other NCJW members as we explore fiction and non-fiction books that delve into social justice topics.

For our next book, we will be discussing housing inequality in St. Louis and beyond by reading “The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America” by Richard Rothstein. We will also take a look at the article, “The Making of Ferguson.”

Exploding the myth of de facto segregation arising from private prejudice or the unintended consequences of economic forces, Rothstein describes how the American government systematically imposed residential segregation: with undisguised racial zoning; public housing that purposefully 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. A groundbreaking, “virtually indispensable” study that has already transformed our understanding of twentieth-century urban history, The Color of Law forces us to face the obligation to remedy our unconstitutional past.

We would love for you to join us via Zoom for an engaging conversation about housing inequality on Wednesday, April 28, 2021 at 6:30 PM CST.

For more information and to register, please contact Jen Bernstein at jbernstein@ncjwstl.org.
