June 12 : Loving Day
From Folk DJ-List (email@example.com):
Today, June 12, is Loving Day, celebrating the day in 1967 when the US
Supreme Court ruled in the case of Loving v. Virginia.? Do I have a song
about this?? Why, yes I do.? “Summer of Loving” lays out the story of
Richard and Mildred Loving, the interracial couple convicted of the
heinous felony of getting married.
Roy Z wrote in about his song about the story of Richard and Mildred
Loving’s inter-racial love story. If you have not heard Nanci
Griffith’s brand new one, check out the tile track: The Loving Kind.
It’s the same story…and a great song. If you have missed Nanci
Griffith, the new CD is back to her old sound and her best record since
