Loving v. VirginiaThere've been many remarkable changes in my lifetime: Personal Computers, iPods, cellphones... but the most influential?: Civil Rights!... yes, for blacks, but also for gays... for anyone DIFFERENT!
Loving v. Virginia 388 U.S. 1 (1967), was a landmark civil rights case in which the United States Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision, declared Virginia's anti-miscegenation statute, the "Racial Integrity Act of 1924", unconstitutional, thereby overturning Pace v. Alabama (1883) and ending all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States.
Once upon a time, as a senior in high school, I was convinced that my generation would be the last to face racial prejudice & discrimination. Sigh.
No, we're not there yet - wherever 'there' might be... BUT: we're getting closer! (I think...)
... in MY lifetime...
