The Door County Library and the League of Women Voters of Door County will take on racial relations at a virtual book discussion in Sturgeon Bay. The organizations will look at Richard Rothstein's latest book entitled “The Color of Law”. It looks at government actions that enforced racial segregation nationwide and were not limited to the southern U.S. States. Adult Services Librarian Laura Kayacan says she was surprised to learn of the disparities in benefits for returning white veterans and black veterans after World War II.
“The Color of Law” is currently number 8 on the New York Times non-fiction best sellers list. The Door County Library and the League of Women Voters Door County book discussion will take place at 11:00 AM, Wednesday, July 15th.
