Virginia” case and how it was the first legal mention of “white supremacy.” Richard Rothstein reveals that segregated housing is not an accident but a deliberate policy of local, state and federal governments. And the Democratic National Committee’s Jess O’Connell talks with Bill Press about the party’s new “rise and organize” program.
