Join the Somerville Public Library and the Somerville Fair Housing Commission for a film screening and discussion for Fair Housing Month.


We will be hosting a screening of the short film Segregated by Design, followed by a conversation with the Somerville Fair Housing Commission on the themes and topics it examines.


About the Film:


Segregated by Design covers many of the key points found in Richard Rothstein’s comprehensive book The Color of Law. Join us to discuss how American housing segregation was not caused merely by the action of prejudiced individuals, but rather, by policies that enabled some people to enter the housing market while slamming the door shut for others.


Housing continues to be the hot-button issue in Somerville. Join us as we discuss our past and the future of our city’s housing.


Please also join us for a virtual conversation on Monday, April 11 as we discuss Rothstein's book The Color of Law.


Seating is limited, so please register in advance.
