Ken Tanabe is a multiracial (Japanese and Belgian) designer, animator, and art director who works in motion, identity, print, experience design, and interactive media. He also is the creator of LovingDay.org – which celebrates and commemorates the landmark Supreme Court decision, Loving v. Virginia, which prohibited laws outlawing interracial marriage, and celebrated Mildred and Richard Loving, the interracial couple that vindicated.

Listen as Ken tells Alex about his parents’ interracial marriage, about growing up multiracial, and about the impetus behind his creation of LovingDay.org and his hopes for the growth of Loving Day as a national day of remembrance.
