When and Where is the Celebration?
Celebrate the 43rd anniversary of the 'Loving vs the State of Virginia' Supreme Court decision to legalize interracial marriage nationwide! Until June 12, 1967 there were many states in America where it was ILLEGAL to marry someone outside your race. The parents of President Barack Obama, as well as my own parents, could have been arrested and imprisoned for marrying prior to that day. The repeal of these laws were a very important step in the civil rights movement. Come join the Biracial & Friends Social Group and the Biracial Family Network in recognizing the progress that has been made, and appreciating diversity and our freedom to love whomever we choose, regardless of color. All are welcome! (21 & over, please)
We will be hosting a FREE after-work party from 5p-9p at Moonshine Lounge 1824 W. Division Chicago, Il in the Wicker Park area.
