Loving Day

Floyd Richard Williams and Elizabeth Jean McStroul were married on October 5, 1968 in Columbus, Franklin County, Ohio.

Today, June 12, is Loving Day, and time to celebrate and remember the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Loving v. Virginia that struck down antimiscegenation laws in the sixteen (Southern) states that still had refused to let them go.
