Countdown to the 50th Anniversary of Loving v Virginia!
In this iconic case, Richard Loving and Mildred Jeter Loving won the right to remain married. Their love and commitment to one another helped pave the way for IR couples across the United States.
Celebrate with Williesha and Jason
For the past four years, interracially married couple Williesha and Jason have hosted a Loving Day celebration in Birmingham, AL.
Alabama was the last state to remove the IR marriage ban from their law books. Lawmakers didn’t remove it until the year 2000!
Happily for us, 2017 marks the 50th year celebration of the successful outcome of the Loving case.
In today’s podcast episode, Williesha provides details about her now-5th year sponsoring a Birmingham Loving Day celebration.
You don’t want to miss this – Williesha’s celebration features a Skype Q & A with a special celebrity guest!
