Sermon

Minister of Art & Communication Phil Porter discusses Richard Rothstein’s book The Color of Law, which demonstrates comprehensively that housing segregation in the United States was systematically supported by federal, state and local laws and ordinances. Rothstein dismantles the widely held view of de facto segregation and shows the generational effects on African-Americans in particular because of explicit and disguised barriers to homeownership. This information powerful addresses the intersection of two powerful justice issues of our time: housing and racism.
