The Loving Story on HBO

Posted in Uncategorized on November 15, 2012 by jerlina

In 1967 the supreme court ruled in the Loving v. Virginia Case that the state’s anti-miscegination laws were unconstitutional. 1967!!! That’s insane!!! That means that within my parent’s lifetime it was illegal in some states for people of different races to get married! wow. Anyway, this documentary tells the story of the family who brought this case to the supreme court after being charged with a felony for getting married.
