The Lovings, as relevant as ever

In the last few weeks, there have been several current events that remind us just how relevant the Lovings still are…

- USA Today published an article about the rise of interracial marriages, and the challenges many families still face.  Amy Wise, one of the women featured in the article, has a wonderful blog you can read here.

- Duke University has been collecting oral histories of Jim Crow south with deeply moving (and often disturbing) accounts of life not too long ago, featured recently on NPR.

- An interracial couple was banned for a small churchy in Kentucky… after a public outcry, the church quickly overturned the ban

- In Western New York, a girl’s varsity basketball team was called out for using a racist cheer to “pump them up” before games… when their only black player spoke up about their repeated use of “‘The N-word,’” she was met with and unsympathetic response, a team member reportedly saying “‘You know we’re not racist, Tyra. It’s just a word, not a label.’”
