52 years ago the Supreme Court ruled that interracial marriages would no longer be illegal... Happy #LovingDay!!! @LeanneMcQueen1
1967: SCOTUS strikes down state laws prohibiting interracial marriage in Loving v. Virginia. The case was led by Richard and Mildred Loving. After the decision, they returned home to Central Point, VA, with their three children. #LovingDay
June 12, we celebrate the landmark, Loving v. Virginia case of ‘67, which made marriage betw. whites & non-whites legal.
Not lost on me as Travis & I prepare to travel next Friday for our wedding week.
To all the government defying couples out there, Happy #LovingDay 👩🏾👱🏼♂️
50 years ago, Mildred and Richard Loving took the fight for their love all the way to the Supreme Court.
The decision in Loving v. Virginia ensured that interracial couples across the country could marry.
The legacy of that landmark ruling lives on today.
Today we honor Virginia’s Mildred and Richard Loving, who took the Commonwealth to court in Loving v. Virginia and won a victory for love and equality on this day in 1967. #LovingDay https://t.co/RtWxlKYBRr
Happy #LovingDay to my amazing better half, @leeladaou
Happy #LovingDay! Today, we honor Richard and Mildred Loving, whose love for each other paved the way for equality in America and left a powerful legacy that lives on.
What does Loving v. Virginia mean to you?
The Supreme Court decriminalized interracial marriage in the United States when it unanimously ruled in favor of Richard and Mildred Loving in 'Loving v. Virginia,’ #OTD in 1967. Love wins. #LovingDay https://t.co/HXcE5dWTdK
& I are grateful every day to Mildred & Richard Loving, to the @ACLU
, and to all those who fought for progress and made interracial marriage legal 52 years ago today.
Our story wouldn’t be possible without them!
Thank you to the Lovings, @ACLU
& all those who helped break down barriers so that all loving couples like Kyle and Amanda could fall in love, marry and create a beautiful family of their own. 💕❤️😍#LovingDay https://t.co/WpUggfcKQa
52 years ago, SCOTUS held bans on interracial marriage unconstitutional. Like Brown, Loving enforced the original, plain meaning of the 14th Amendment—a meaning disfigured by a century of Jim Crow. Hugely important decisions for our country, but also easy ones legally. #LovingDay
It's hard to believe years ago my family would have been considered illegal. Love should never have such hurdles and its why I fight for equality. Be sure there are still so many whose love is shunned by society. #lovingday https://t.co/WWTN3sSAW7
Happy Loving Day!!!! Thank you to Richard and Mildred for all you endured to make marriages like mine possible!!!!
Fifty-two years ago today, the Supreme Court legalized interracial marriage nationwide. Mildred & Richard Loving got married in DC. #LovingDay
On this day 52 years ago, the Supreme Court voted unanimously to strike down laws prohibiting interracial marriage. Today, we honor the enduring love and courage of Mildred and Richard Loving and celebrate their lasting impact on Virginia and our nation. #LovingDay
As children we’re taught to judge others not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I knew before I was born.
Thank you for persevering through hate, so that I could know love. #LovingDay https://t.co/uvb8fzAGOD
Before 1967, my marriage would have been illegal in most of the United States. Love is always right.
Except when we as humans call it wrong. #LovingDay https://t.co/u3Uf2tjUdZ
Thank you, Senator @MarkWarner
, for sharing #LovingDay. It's especially meaningful coming from you. From 8.4% of all U.S. married couples & 14% of infants who are #multiracial, we appreciate you today, and hope you'll bring official Loving Day recognition to the U.S. Senate. https://t.co/dBxTmBQDfQ
Today in 1967, the Supreme Court made their landmark decision to strike down laws against interracial marriage. Our ongoing work toward equality before the law is only possible due to the persistence & courage of ordinary Americans like Mildred and Richard Loving. #LovingDay
Happy Loving day! Today we celebrate the repeal of the law that prohibited interracial couples from marrying. Without this legalization, my amazing marriage and children could not legally exist. #lovingday @lovingday https://t.co/WuMtErK3Dg
Happy #LovingDay to all.
On a day which later saw the #PulseNightclub massacre, let us endeavor to be better, to love each other a without prejudice, to judge one another a little less harshly, to be worthy of the sacrifices of the Lovings, who fought and won the right to marry.
Today we celebrate and give thanks to the Lovings for what they did for families like ours. I chat more about Loving Day on my blog https://t.co/B8TkKa9Ck2
These are the people I love with all my heart and am so lucky to have them in my life for they bring they greatest joy and laughter to our house ❤️ https://t.co/JO1Vi8BdVS

Today is #LovingDay--the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision of Loving v. Virgina, in which SCOTUS ruled that states could no longer deem interracial marriages illegal.
Interracial love is beautiful, powerful, and most of all, normal!! https://t.co/NQoMme4ApT
Happy #lovingday! No this isn't another Valentine's day. ❤️ 53 years ago our marriage would have been illegal. Our family would not be what it is today...thanks to the Supreme Court in Loving v. Virgina on June 12, 1967 Americans were free to marry whoever they wanted. https://t.co/yKbCcbEsZr
June 12 is the anniversary of:
1. Medgar Evers' assassination
2. Loving v. Virginia, outlawing discrimination in Marriage
3. The Pulse Nightclub attack, the deadliest attack on the LGBTQ population in America
We have work to do yet
#MedgarEvers #LovingDay #Pulse #EqualityForAll
Happy #LovingDay to all the #interracialcouples out there! On June 12, 1967, marriage became legal for interracial couples in America. Celebrate your marriage today! #interracialmarriage #marriedlife #love 👩🏾🦱❤️👨🏻 https://t.co/OZXIvMtIn4
There are many types of love. Today I felt the love from my biz contacts, with not 1 but 6 recommendations for my work on LinkedIn 😎 A great boost - I was feeling flat for a combination of reasons. I also felt agape kind of love for the wildlife in my garden. Happy #LovingDay 😍
Love is #LovingDay! Share your history and pride on this special day celebrating marriage equality 💖: https://t.co/YND2Uvy3j5
It’s crazy to think that only 52 years ago today, it became legal for people like me to marry people like my wife. All thanks to the Loving Family’s fight for legitimacy. All right here in my home state of Virginia. #LovingDay https://t.co/EMJSSnu2Lj
«Happy #LovingDay!» 💓
[Whether you have a cheesy relationship like Emmet and Lucy, or a little bit more intense as Green Arrow and Black Canary, it is always great to have someone to love... oh, and excuse Dinah's… https://t.co/qjHoV3rTXf
Celebrating #LovingDay today. 52 years ago the Supreme Court ruled marriage is a civil right and cannot be infringed upon. Ending state laws that banned interracial marriages. My family probably wouldn’t exist without Loving V Virginia. ❤️
#LovingDay commemorates 52 years since Supreme Court ruled that laws criminalizing interracial marriage were unconstitutional. If you want to sink your teeth into this (you should) watch this series abt the cultural waves & topics that have emerged since: https://t.co/NPvIoC4zB0
Today is a historic day for men and women in the U.S. Before June 12, 1967, interracial marriage was still outlawed in 16 states. However, 52 years ago today, the Supreme Court Case Loving Vs. Virginia made interracial marriage legal in America. #LovingDay https://t.co/ckslAbivq3
