Mildred Loving, 1939-2008

Mildred Loving, 1939-2008

Mildred Loving, whose 1967 Supreme Court victory brought an end to laws prohibiting interracial marriage in the United States, passed away on Friday at the age of 68.

Much has been written about Mrs. Loving and her husband, Richard. Of particular note for legal scholars are last year’s Howard Law Journal symposium commemorating the 40th anniversary of Loving v. Virginia and Phyl Newbeck’s 2004 book.
