Loving Day

Did you know that June 12 was Loving Day? Loving Day is an educational community project commemorating Loving v. Virginia (1967), the landmark Supreme Court decision that banned restrictions on interracial marriage. Although it's too late to join in on the Loving Day Celebrations, it's not too late to learn about the Supreme Court decision. The Loving Day web site has a map showing where and when interracial marriages were illegal (it looks like it was never illegal in New York); a list of court cases dealing with the regulation of interracial marriage; and a resources page.
