Barbara Katz Rothman is Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Baruch College, CUNY, and author of Weaving a Family: Untangling Race and Adoption. About her book, Dorothy Roberts has said, "Writing as a mother and a sociologist, Barbara Katz Rothman provides insightful, urgent lessons on mothering children in a racist world.

Grounded in racial reality, including the disturbing history of whites raising black children, while refuting the myth of biological races, Weaving a Family is ultimately hopeful about the possibility of building just and lasting relationships across racial borders.”

College Hall is located across and to the left of the 8th floor exit from Forbes Garage (Forbes Avenue, between Magee Street and McAnulty Drive).
