Mildred & Richard Loving were arrested for breaking Virginia's law against interracial marriage. Their landmark Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia legalized interracial marriage in the U.S. It's neat how their name was Loving and how they advocated love and marriage between the races.
The Lovings, not allowed to be legally married in the state of Virginia. In 1967 their case was taken all the way to the Supreme Court where it was decided that no marriage could be denied because of the persons race. Here we are in 2013, let's hope that the Supreme Court does the right thing again, and declares that no two people should not be allowed to be married based on their sexual orientation.
