Herstory - The Legal history of Chinese American Women Exhibition, 1967 Freedom to marry was upheld in Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967)

Loving v. Virginia is a landmark civil rights decision of the United States Supreme Court which invalidated laws prohibiting interracial marriage. The case was brought by Mildred Loving, a black woman, and Richard Loving, a white man, who had been sentenced to a year in prison in Virginia for marrying each other. Their marriage violated the state's anti-miscegenation statute, the Racial Integrity Act of 1924, which prohibited marriage between people classified as "white" and people classified as "colored". The Supreme Court's unanimous decision determined that this prohibition was unconstitutional, reversing Pace v. Alabama (1883) and ending all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States.

在羞國各州,異族通婚一直被視為非法,直到1958年,黑白通婚的愛夫婦提起訴訟,最高法院認定婚姻乃基本人權,所以各州禁止異族通婚的法律一律違憲。愛夫婦不是華人,卻為華人爭取到最基本的婚姻權。
