About the Event: Join advocates in the fields of housing and education as we examine the troubling history and roots of our nation's persistent racial segregation. We will explore ways that we can and must engage in cross-sector work to address the inequities in community and school investment that are rooted in Chicago's history of housing segregation. Books by both Richard Rothstein and Natalie Moore will be available for purchase and they will sign books at the event.


This event is sponsored by the Chicago Teachers Union, Chicago Area Fair Housing Alliance, and the University of Illinois at Chicago's Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy.
