The Meaning of Marriage: Mildred Loving
Ed Brayton here publishes a marvelous piece of writing by Mildred Loving. Mrs. Loving is the African-American woman who married a white man, was arrested for it, and the case went all the way to the Supreme Court which decided that miscegenation laws were unconstitutional. I would quote parts, but what she has to say about love is so important I urge you to read the whole statement, which is not very long.
