When and Where is the Celebration?
Join us for THE LOVINGS documentary watch party to honor the 53rd Anniversary of the 'Loving v. 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 Obama, Meghan Markle as well as many of our own parents, and even some of our older Multiracial Meetup friends themselves could have been arrested and imprisoned for marrying prior to that day. That is what actually happened to Mr & Mrs Richard and Mildred Loving(their real names!), who took the fight for their right to be married all the way to the Supreme Court.
