How come I've never heard of this before?

Loving Day 

(& it was just last week!)

They have a very nice map showing when each U.S. state's law was changed, too. Pretty scary- when I was born, it was legal everywhere, but when H was born there were 19 states where interracial marriage was illegal. Including one of the states where we have lived! Yikes.

I sure hope we can have another day like this in the VERY near future to celebrate marriage rights for same-sex couples, too.

I never heard of it either and I am the product of interracial marriage, My parents married in 1967, the same year as the Loving case.

What a great site. Thanks for sharing!!!
