What is the significance of Lawrence v. Texas? Lots of people know about Obergefell v. Hodges (the 2015 Supreme Court case that legalized gay marriage), but Lawrence paved the way and increased the civil rights of gay couples.
With MLK Day today (and with Valentine’s coming up), I thought I would summarize the Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court case. This case was an important one in the fight for racial equality. I also think that the case’s name (Loving) is super en pointe. Awhile ago, it was made into a beautiful movie called Loving.
