The Case for Loving, about the Supreme Court case of 1967 that ended the ban on interracial marriage in Virginia. It's a good book. Before we started writing, I read over the list of connection writing topics that the Thirdlanders had jotted down on their partner chat sheet. The majority wanted to write about weddings they've attended, but there were some other original topics offered like:
- I love people, too.
- Someone tried to stop me from doing what I want before.
- I want to end racism.
- Black lives matter.
"Sounds good," I told him and we all got into gear. I wrote as well. Not about anything fascinating---just some memories of adults telling me to stay away from certain kids when I was little. A pleasant start to our day. I'm really liking this class.
