5. Loving Day
Sunday June 12, 2016
Loving Day commemorates a date in history when the Supreme Court of America ruled to disband all anti-miscegenation laws in 1967 (laws that made mixed race marriages illegal).
Loving vs Virginia was an important Supreme Court case, but it was also the story of a real couple’s love. Mildred Jeter (Black woman) and Richard Loving (White man) grew up in Virginia, USA.
Not only did the case win them their freedom to love each other, but it also granted the same freedom to every interracial couple in every state in the USA. At the time of the Loving case, sixteen states had laws prohibiting interracial couples to marry.
Loving v. Virginia (1967) made it illegal for any state to enforce those laws which stop interracial marriage. These laws did not only apply to Black and White people; in many states restriction on relationships with Asians, Native Americans, Indians, Hispanics, and other ethnic groups were abolished.
