Virginia, his book about the pivotal court case that ended the invalidation, even criminalization, of marriages between people identified as "Black" and those classified as "White." Hear more about this landmark Supreme Court ruling, the circumstances that led up to it and the people who made it happen, and how it freed all people and changed a nation.
