Loving Day Knoxville Celebration
Richard and Mildred Loving didn't set out to do anything dramatic--they were merely two humans in love, but the State of Virginia saw it differently. In 1967 on June 12 (Loving vs. Virginia), the Supreme Court ruled anti-miscegenation laws to be unconstitutional. With that decision, the Lovings and interracial couples of all shades were free to love and marry whom they chose. A day worth celebrating!
A location and time have now been set for a Knoxville celebration, June 20, 2011, 6 p.m. at a local, family-friendly restaurant. To RSVP or learn more about this event, contact me.
