Black History Legends….Day 13

  “Marriage is one of the “basic civil rights of man,” fundamental to our very existence and survival. … To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State’s citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State.”  (Chief Justice Earl Warren-June 12, 1967)

On April 10, 1967, the case was heard and on June 12, 1967, it was declared that the Pace-v-Alabama of 1883 was unconstitutional, violated the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th amendment and overruled by ending all illegal restrictions on marriage in all states except Alabama, which later joined after Nixon got involved.
