The Case for Loving: The Fight for Interracial Marriage - Selina Alko

Richard Loving, a white man, and Mildred Jeter, a black woman, married in Washington, D.C. where their union was legal, but they returned home to Virginia to live in the country. There, they were arrested under charges of “unlawful cohabitation” and Richard and Mildred began their fight, getting the court involved. After a long journey, The Case for Loving (Arthur A. Levine Books, $18.99) was won in 1967 and the two were able to live happily (and legally) ever after. Husband and wife duo Sean Qualls and Selina Alko tell the story of those who have come before them in a story of the fight for interracial marriage. Ages 5-9 Allison Witten
