My Final Project: Loving vs. Virginia 1967



The case of loving vs. Virginia was a case very controversial. A married couple, lived together in Caroline County, Virginia. She was black and he was white. Virginia upheld the antimiscegenation law. This law stated that interracial marriages were illegal. The argument of this case was on April 1,1967 and it reached its verdict on June 12,1967. Their home state challenged the antimiscegenation law. The Lovings were found guilty. They were sentence to one year in jail. However, the trial judge suspended the sentence for a period of 25 years on the condition that the Lovings leave the State and not return to Virginia together for 25 years. They went to live in Washington D.C. And got married there. The Lovings were Mr. And Mrs. P. Richard. Forced to move, they returned to Washington D.C. where, in 1963, they initiated a suit challenging the constitutionality of the antimiscegenation law.
