Loving Day commemorates the landmark 1967 Supreme Court decision to overturn the ban on interracial marriage in the United States. As a tribute to this special day, we are reproducing our social media post for Loving Day here.
Happy Loving Day 2020. We’ve been #mutedandlistening to our brothers and sisters of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We’ve been watching in awe as the nation and the world joined to decry and denounce racism. We've been mindfully present in this moment of history. As @hasanminhaj said in his BRILLIANT call to action a couple of weeks ago, MLK Jr. “CC’ed us on that [proverbial] email of progress” when he pushed for the Civil Acts Right of 1964 and it paved the way for the Immigration Act of 1965. Of course, the 1967 Loving v. Virginia case has a special place in our hearts, and we were “CC’ed” on progress once again…
As an interracial couple, we are eternally grateful to Richard and Mildred Loving and all of the #civilrights heroes of yesterday- and we join the leaders of today as the nation continues to evolve.
As a humble gesture, in 2011, we paid tribute to Mildred and Richard Loving, and the landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court that struck down laws banning #interracialmarriage, with this design. LOVING DAY is a wedding band engraved with the Case ID # of Loving v. Virginia and is a reminder of how far we've come and all the work left to do.
