The Evolving Right to Marry

Lecture no. 13 from the course: Liberty on Trial in America: Cases That Defined Freedom

The Evolving Right to Marry

Taught by Professor Douglas O. Linder | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Richard Loving wanted to do nothing more than to marry the woman of his dreams. But Richard was white, and Mildred, according to the commonwealth of Virginia, was “colored,” which made it illegal for them to marry. Learn how the case of this modest, unassuming couple went all the way to the Supreme Court, and how the Court’s ruling eventually led to marriage equality for same-sex couples, as well.
