Barney Frank discusses his journey from Bayonne, New Jersey to the U.S. Congress, where he played a vital role in the struggle for personal freedom and economic fairness.
He'll talk about his fight for gay rights and his lifelong struggle against inequality—from his early civil rights advocacy in the Massachusetts State Legislature to his instrumental role as Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee. From the Clinton impeachment to the economic meltdown of 2008 to the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Frank’s words and deeds mattered. He's the author of a new memoir, Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage.
