Mildred Loving Holding a Photo of Husband Richard
Mildred Loving holds a photo of her husband Richard as a young man. The Lovings were codefendants in the 1967 U.S. Supreme Court case that overturned state bans on interracial marriage. The Lovings' children stand in the background: (from left to right) Sidney, Donald, and Peggy, holding her son Mark. Richard died in a 1975 automobile accident that left Mildred blind in one eye; she died in 2008.
