This book is suitable for primary grades. It is based on a critical historical moment for interracial marriage. It is based on the Loving family who fight for their interracial marriage to be legal in Virginia, their home state. It beautifully portrays that when two people stand up for what they believe in, progress occurs. I would use this book in my class as a way to celebrate how far our country has come in terms of race and discrimination. I could use this to celebrate the students in my class who come from an interracial family and portray to them how special that is. ( )

"Biography and autobiography intertwine in this account of the landmark case of Loving v. Virginia.

Richard Loving, pale-skinned and vulnerable to sunburn, and Mildred Jeter, a brown-skinned woman of African-American and Cherokee descent, fell in love in 1958. But in the state of Virginia, miscegenation was illegal and punishable by imprisonment. They traveled to Washington, D.C., to marry legally, but when they returned and moved in together, the local police arrested and jailed them. This story makes palatable for young readers a painful, personal and true story of the injustices interracial couples suffered as recently as 60 years ago. Alko and Qualls reveal the double-layered nature of this story with a photograph of themselves; this was the perfect story for a collaboration since their journey echoes the Lovings’. In the backmatter, Alko cites the current statistics on gay marriage and hopes that “there will soon come a time when all people who love each other have the same rights as Sean and I have.” The “Suggestions for Further Reading” mentions both earlier books in the same tradition, such as Arnold Adoff and Emily Arnold McCully’s Black Is Brown Is Tan (1973, 2002), and contemporary ones that detail other civil rights struggles.

Despite the gentle way this book unfolds, the language and images deal a blow to racist thinking and just might inspire the next generation of young civil rights activists. (artists’ note, sources)" A Kirkus starred review, www.kirkusreviews.com

I loved reading this book. I honestly felt a connection to this book because I am a biracial child with a Caucasian father and African American mother. My mother was born in 1959 and it amazes me how realistic this book is to be taking place in the 1950’s to almost the 1970’s. It just shocks me completely because my mom never even married my father they were only engaged.
I would love to read this book to a classroom. I think this book would start a good discussion with children about international marriages and acceptance. ( )

I don't know of any picture books that have filled my heart with joy like The Case For Loving has. Selina Alko uses few words but still speaks volumes in this very real and complex story and then streamlines it beautifully in a way that young readers can understand.

The story centers around Richard and Mildred Loving, the interracial couple who challenged Virginia's laws forbidding interracial marriages and took their case all the way to the Supreme Court.

“Tell the Court I love my wife, and it is just unfair that I can’t live with her in Virginia.”

I love love, always have, and this story fills me up and makes me want to share it with all the young readers in my life. Sidenote, the illustrator is author Alko and her real-life husband, Sean Qualls!! What a wonderful collaboration and celebration of LOVE. ( )
