SUMMER OF LOVE: Educational Panel Discussion on Loving v. Virginia + Flower Power Crown Crafting
A day dedicated to love and creativity? Count us in! Meet our groovy Summer of Love tour bus at John Wesley Church this Friday afternoon from 3 - 5 PM for an informative panel discussion on the history and impact of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision to allow interracial marriages via the case of Loving v. Virginia. The program is co-sponsored by the Waterford Foundation and the Loudoun Freedom Center, and the moderator — Dr. George Banks, Ph.D. — will give a 15-minute presentation on the history of the Loving V. Virginia case and miscegenation laws. Following will be a 30-minute panel discussion among 3-4 couples that will share their diverse Loving stories and then 15 – 20 minutes of direct conversation with the audience. Plus, join us beforehand at 2 PM (til 4 PM) at the Waterford Corner Store for some fun flower power crown crafting!
