Richard Loving

After he and his “colored” wife plead guilty to “cohabitating as man and wife, against the peace and dignity of the commonwealth”, Richard Perry Loving successfully challenged Virginia’s Racial Integrity Act of 1924, which prohibited marriage between persons identified as white and persons identified as colored, before the U.S. Supreme Court in the appropriately entitled Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967).  Given the historic nature of his case, we’re not touching this Dick with a ten-foot pole.
