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.

zora

   Zora Neale Hurston was born in Notasulga, Alabama in 1898 to John and Lucy Potts Hurston.  She was the 5th of 8 children and when she was 9 years old her mother died and her dad remarried shortly after.  Her father John decided to move the family to Eatonville, Florida, which was founded in 1887 and was the oldest incorporated black town in America.
Pictured above: Zora attended Eatonville High School in 1917 at the age of “26”…yes that’s correct and she finished in one year.  She had to lie to the Public School system that she was born in 1901 instead of 1891, in order to qualify for a free education.  After she received her diploma in 1918, she took a job as a manicurist and waitress in order to pay for her tuition at Howard University in Washington D.C.
Pictured above: Zora attended Howard University 1919 and received her Associates Degree in one year and published her 1st stories with the Howard newsletter.
Pictured above: Zora Hurston’s writings and stories told through her eyes during her life.

Pictured above: Zora was honored on her 119th birthday in 2003 by the United States with her own postage stamp.  Zora suffered a stroke in 1959 and moved to St. Lucie County Welfare Home in Florida.  Shortly after her 69th birthday, she died from heart disease and was buried in the Garden of Heavenly Rest in Fort Pierce, Florida.  Alice Walker revived her memory by celebrating her life through her work.
