Celebrate Loving Day by sharing stories of families brought together by love.
"The “Loving” in Loving Day is actually the last name of Mildred and Richard Loving. The Loving Day Story begins when they were arrested for being married in 1958 because they were an interracial couple living in Virginia.
Nine years after their arrest, the Lovings won their case (Loving v. Virginia (1967) on June 12th, 1967 (which is why Loving Day is on June 12th). It was more than a victory for their family. It struck down all state laws against interracial marriage in the U.S.
The Lovings’ memorable story (and fitting name), are part of a larger and continuing struggle for racial justice."--from lovingday.org
