Loving Day Celebration

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Loving Day

Monday, June 12

5:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Secretary of State Auditorium

1500 11th Street

Sacramento

Please join the California Legislative Black Caucus to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Loving Day with a panel discussion on interracial marriage, civil rights, and HR 39 (McCarty), followed by a screening of the film “Loving.”

Loving Day is an annual celebration held on June 12, the anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia which struck down all laws remaining in sixteen U.S. states banning interracial marriage.

This ruling is especially memorable for California, the first state court to strike down a law banning interracial marriage. This landmark case affirmed the marriage of Andrea Perez (a Mexican American woman) and Sylvester Davis (an African American man) in 1948.

This event is free and open to the public.

RSVP is required. Please RSVP to: Ashley.Johnson@asm.ca.gov
