Loving Day Celebration in the side room

Celebrate that love is a wonderful thing that goes beyond race. 

Loving Day seeks both to commemorate and celebrate the Supreme Court's 1967 Loving v. Virginia ruling, which struck down anti-miscegenation laws in the US.  Loving Day is for keeping its importance fresh in the minds of a generation which has grown up with interracial relationships being legal, as well as explore issues facing couples currently in interracial relationships. The Loving Day website features information, including court transcripts of the Loving v. Virginia case and of other court cases in which the legality of anti-miscegenation laws was challenged. To celebrate the holiday, people are encouraged to hold parties in which the case and its modern-day legacy are discussed, in smaller settings such as living rooms, backyards, etc., as well as in larger gatherings
