    1. This is truly a book which every American must read. Virginia has been in the media spotlight this year because of 2 things: 1. The tragedy in Charlottesville, Virginia that resulted in the death of anti-racist protester Heather Heyer that has caught both national and international attention. 2. The 50th anniversary of The late Richard and Mildred Loving's lawsuit in their home state that outlawed Interracial Marriage which the Supreme Court had ruled unconstitutional. Mrs. Cashin has done an ex [...]

    2. LOVING. Interracial intimacy in America and the Threat to White Supremacy. (2017). Sheryll Cashin. ***.I first learned of this book after listening to the author on NPR. It was supposed to be about the court case of Mildred Jeter and Richard Loving vs. the State of Virginia. Hard to believe that Virginia had a law on their books prohibiting the marriage between people of different colors. The couple knew that, and got married in Washington, D.C. They then returned to their home in VA, where they [...]

    3. I heard about this book during a Fresh Air podcast and I instantly had to get my hands on it. This is a topic that I'm passionate about and I actually teach the Loving vs Virginia trial details in my civil rights unit at school (and I just bought the new YA verse novel about the case).This was such an interesting outlook on how we have progressed with our outlook of race, how the concept of race was created over time, and how our progress of enlightenment is impacting how race still exists in Am [...]

    4. Excellent overview of the history of interracial relationships in America and how definitions and laws changed over time to reinforce notions of white supremacy. It was very compelling, I couldn't put it down, which rarely happens with non-fiction books for me. She ended on a hopeful note, even in the Trump era, that personal, intimate interracial friendships and relationships are the main way we can overcome white supremacy and racism in our society.

    5. The compelling voice of The Agitator’s Daughter is back full force in Loving. In her new book, Sheryll Cashin delves into the history of laws barring inter-racial marriage and intimacy in the colonies and the states, as well as the enforcement of these laws across state lines. She shares how these laws and practices were part and parcel of the White Supremacy regimes of Slavery, Jim Crow, and Caste Discrimination that divided America for so long and so deeply. Ironically, as with the first wri [...]

    6. Good background and historical information. With the recent anniversary of Loving v. Virginia case I was excited to see this book become available at my library. I recently watched the 2016 film about the case and so thought this would be a good pickup. This wasn't quite what I expected at first. Author Cashin takes the reader though the history of interracial relationships in US history, from the first settlers through the present. Sometimes when authors do this it can be a really dry and bor [...]

    7. For those who missed the recent articles, this is the 50th anniversary of 'Loving v Virginia,' one of our landmark legal cases. In it, a bi-racial couple took on the ruling by the Commonwealth of Virginia that their marriage in Washington, DC meant nothing in Virginia. They were exiled---EXILED!---from their home for 25 years.After repeated arrests for being caught visiting family in their hometown, they finally brought suit, winding up victorious before the Supreme Court. They opened the way fo [...]

    8. A concise, compelling, and timely examination of the history of inter-racial marriage and race relations in America. The section on colonial history was especially surprising and interesting. Cashing deftly uses the 1967 Richard and Mildred Loving vs Virginia case which resulted in the Supreme Court overturning Virginia's anti-miscegenation laws as the basis for her examination. Her outlook is ultimately optimistic and her premise that love (romantic and platonic) is the strongest antidote to wh [...]

    9. Wowzas. Want to know EVERYTHING about the history of interracial marriage in America? It’s right here, along with any and every rabbit hole you want to trail down when it comes to the subject. Bravo, Sheryll Cashin.

    10. This book should be read by everyone living in America. It will provoke internal reflection, self examination. It should be a required reading textbook for every high school student in America.

    11. The present/future section loses a bit of the tight researched focus of the first 2 segments but overall an excellent primer of systemic white supremacy in America through the lens of marriage.

    12. Fantastic! A Lot of cultural historical facts (with sources) in this one. Really enjoyed the backstory of boxer Jack Johnson and John McCain's son. Learned a lot from this one.

    13. This book was not actually about Loving v. Virginia -- it was a pseudo-sociological argument for the benefit of "cultural dexterity" where white people in close interracial relationships (can also be just close friendships or adoption) develop a deeper understanding of what it's like to be POC in America and that eventually there will be enough culturally dexterous white people to reach a tipping point in the battle against white supremacy. I liked the argument, but wasn't convinced by the bases [...]

    14. A very interesting read about Richard and Mildred loving, starting at their individual beginnings.
