Mildred and Richard Loving were given the right to marry in 1967. Imagine, black and white people could NOT marry each other in 1966. Here’s their photograph. I am dedicating this page to my mother, (today being her birthday) Rose Hoffman, who supported equal rights and taught her children that equal was best for everyone.
