Celebrate Loving Day: When Interracial Marriages Became Legal On June 12, 1967

Forty-five years ago, two brave people who stood up for their love gave me the greatest gift I never asked for but couldn’t imagine living without, the ability to legally marry the man I fell in love with.

Today is a commemoration of that special day, a holiday known to some as “Loving Day.”
