The Color of Law
From NAR®: As stewards of the right to own, use and transfer private property, fair housing protects our livelihood and business as REALTORS® and depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity.
As we celebrate Black History Month, Stellar MLS believes it is critical as real estate professionals that we understand the history behind race and housing in America. In Richard Rothstein’s book, The Color Of Law, the history is made clear asserting that it was the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.
The Color of Law is recommended reading by NAR® and is available as an audiobook for NAR® members as part of the Fair Housing and Civil Rights collection (Member ID required). It is also available on the publisher's website, and on Amazon.com.
