Argued April 10, 1967 | Decided June 12, 1967

Happy 45th Anniversary Loving v. Virginia!

Today is the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision to end all race-based restrictions on marriage in America with Loving (pictured here) vs. Virginia. Only 45 years ago it was perfectly legal for a state to arrest a couple if they were interracial. The world can change ... somebody tell the Church of England!
