The City of Columbia and local partners have worked together to host four virtual sessions on the book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America. The purpose of these sessions is to explore the concepts presented in the book to understand their role in shaping Columbia and explore ways we can address the effects of past policies to create a more equitable community.
The second session's discussion will be centered around effects of redlining on today’s disparities. Panelists for the second session, to be moderated by Cynthia Hardy, include:
- Cheryl Scott, DHEC
- Dr. Ron Epps , Retired Richland 1 Superintendent
- Dr. Aditi Srivastav Bussells, Director of Research, Children's Trust of South Carolina
- Dominik Mjartan, President/CEO, Optus Bank
- Anne, Sinclair, Retired Member Columbia City Council
Session 3 will be held on January 21, 2020, featuring a discussion with The Color of Law author Richard Rothstein (Sponsored by Dominion Energy and South Carolina Humanities).
Session 4 will be held on February 4, 2020, where the topic is Where Do We Go from Here: Innovative Solutions from Today’s Mayors.
