A few days ago I posted this because I see her as an important emerging leader, and I was astonished at how many of my readers did not know who she was: Meet Karen Finney. In the post there was a link to a story Karen originally published in U.S. News & World Report where she mentions a Supreme Court Case.
Thankfully for our country, in the case of Loving v. Virginia, the Supreme Court saw beyond the fear and bigotry of the moment and ruled that antimiscegenation laws violated fundamental American values of Due Process and Equal Protection Under the Law as guaranteed to every American by our constitution.
Tonight at 9 EST HBO will present the documentary story of the Lovings. What an appropriate way to celebrate this holiday!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all! ♥
