On June 12, 1967, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple whose marriage had been prohibited by the state of Virginia’s Racial Integrity Act. This telegram was sent from John F. Davis, clerk of the court, to the Loving’s attorney, Bernard S. Cohen.
The Supreme Court’s Decision in Loving v. Virginia is among the featured items at the “Making Their Mark: Stories Through Signatures" exhibit now on display at the National Archives Museum.
