Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Stanford Law School Professor Banks will tackle that oh-so-controversial institution: marriage. His recent book, Is Marriage for White People? How the African American Marriage Decline Affects Everyone, explores the deterioration of marriage in America and its implications for family and romantic relationships. Join us for an intimate look at the changing nature of nuptials.
