A 2015 Supreme Court ruling made same-sex unions legal across the United States — but the road to that momentous decision was much longer than many know. In his new book, The Engagement: America’s Quarter-Century Struggle Over Same-Sex Marriage, Sasha Issenberg tells the riveting story of the conflict over same-sex marriage in the United States —the most significant civil rights breakthrough of the new millennium — providing a richly detailed narrative that follows the coast-to-coast conflict through courtrooms and war rooms, bedrooms and boardrooms. In conversation with CNN’s Nia-Malika Henderson, Issenberg will discuss same-sex marriage’s unexpected path from the unimaginable to the inevitable.
This event is produced in partnership with New York University’s John Brademas Center.
