Loving Day

Loving Day 2011 Knoxville Celebration

Location has been set. Date: June 20, 2011. Please contact me if you are interested in attending or helping with this event.

History

In June 1967, Mildred & Richard Loving won their supreme court case that legalized interracial marriage in all fifty states. This landmark case was mostly buried in history until only within the last decade.

Celebrations

In 2004, http://www.lovingday.org/ went public, and its founder, along with many volunteers, soon organized the first Loving Day celebration in New York City. Over 1,000 guests attend the annual event in NYC, and now there are Loving Day celebrations not only all over the U.S. but in other countries as well. Visit the Loving Day site for more information.
