When my parents were married in 1961, their marriage was legal in only 34 states. That is crazy to me. I owe the Lovings more than I can ever express. Happy #LovingDay! Here are my folks on their wedding day, and now, 58 years strong!
1967: SCOTUS strikes down state laws prohibiting interracial marriage in Loving v. Virginia. The case was led by Richard and Mildred Loving. After the decision, they returned home to Central Point, VA, with their three children. #LovingDay
@AmandaK_B & I are grateful every day to Mildred & Richard Loving, to the @ACLU, and to all those who fought for progress and made interracial marriage legal 52 years ago today.
Our story wouldn’t be possible without them!
The Supreme Court decriminalized interracial marriage in the United States when it unanimously ruled in favor of Richard and Mildred Loving in 'Loving v. Virginia,’ #OTD in 1967. Love wins. #LovingDay https://t-t.site/2LHNLVe
Happy #LovingDay! In 1967, just 52 years ago, the Supreme Court struck down state laws that banned interracial marriage making marriages like ours legal.
As children we’re taught to judge others not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I knew before I was born.
Thank you for persevering through hate, so that I could know love. #LovingDay
Today we celebrate the anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Loving vs. Virginia. This court case eliminated anti-miscegenation laws in the United States where interracial marriage was illegal. Spreading love today! 💞#lovingday
Before 1967, my marriage would have been illegal in most of the United States. Love is always right.
Except when we as humans call it wrong. #LovingDay
Happy #LovingDay everyone! We celebrate Mildred and Richard Loving perseverance to be together despite laws that prohibited interracial marriage. We worked on this rad project with @CodeforDC to visualize how those laws SLOWLY changed over time. http://bit.ly/lovingmap
Love is love. 1967 is not that long ago. #LovingDay
Today we celebrate #LovingDay, the day in (just) 1967, the Supreme Court struck down state laws that banned interracial marriage. Did you know that was just 52 years ago? Less than a lifetime.
Thank you to the Lovings, @ACLU & all those who helped break down barriers so that all loving couples like Kyle and Amanda could fall in love, marry and create a beautiful family of their own. 💕❤️😍#LovingDay https://twitter.com/Kyle_Lierman/status/1138819612856979456
Today is #LovingDay
The day they legalized interracial marriage in all 50 states in America in 1967.
💚 My wife and son are the world to me.
Happy Loving Day!!!! Thank you to Richard and Mildred for all you endured to make marriages like mine possible!!!!
Happy #LovingDay! Without the Lovings and other couples like them, my husband and I might not have been able to have this wonderful life and three gorgeous, rotten kids together.
Happy #LovingDay to all interracial relationships and gentle reminder to not use us or our children as proof that racism is over 🙄
Because of Richard & Mildred Loving, we can love!
