Professor Katherine Franke talked about her book, Wedlocked: The Preils of Marriage Equality, about the struggle for marriage rights for freed slaves during the 1860s and the LGBT community today. She suggested that tying the definition of free and equal citizenship to the institution of marriage could have a dangerous impact. Other speakers included professors Mignon Moore, Kendall Thomas, Patricia Williams, and Marianne Hirsch. close
