Mandala Book Club- The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein
Let’s gather, Yogis and non-yogis alike, for good reads to inspire conscious introspection and thoughtful conversation!
The Mandala Book Club is a way to take this practice off the mat and into our community. To raise our awareness of the issues and challenges of our locale and to hear from the people working hard to overcome them. Each month will be hosted by a different local community organization who inspires us.
Our February host is Katy Casey from The East Hampton Housing Authority. She has chosen The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein.
This book is important in that it thoroughly explores the real reasons for segregation in housing and the government’s role therein. Inequality is not a casual result of happenstance or unintended consequence of the natural order of things. It is the result of decades of social engineering for financial and political gain. Inequality is a construct of unconstitutional laws intended to deprive human rights.
Mandala Book Club is in partnership with The Amagansett Free library and facilitated by librarian, Evan Harris. It is free and open to everyone! We meet at Mandala Yoga one Thursday each month from 7:00-8:30pm.
This is a free gathering but please sign up so we know how much soup to make.
