“Loving Day” Poetry Reading June 12, 2014

“Loving Day” Poetry Reading June 12, 2014.

I’m happy to be included in this reading!

June 12 is “Loving Day” (every year) and this year Cupertino Poet Laureate Jennifer Swanton Brown will be hosting the second poetry reading in my Unsung Holidaysseries. (Remember April Fool’s Day?)

“Loving Day” is an annual celebration held on June 12, the anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia which struck down all anti-miscegenation laws remaining in sixteen U.S. states citing “There can be no doubt that restricting the freedom to marry solely because of racial classifications violates the central meaning of the equal protection clause.”  According to the official website, there are official celebrations all over the world every year. This year, in Cupertino, we’re having a poetry reading.
