June 12th was Loving Day, and this year it marked the 50th anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision, Loving v. Virginia, which finally struck down the remaining anti-miscegenation laws in America. Front and center in the media attention around this important date was Sheryll Cashin’s new book, Loving: Interracial Intimacy in America and the Threat to White Supremacy.
Some of the highlights from the publicity campaign include an interview on NPR’s Fresh Air, an adapted excerpt in the New York Times' Sunday Review section, and an appearance on the PBS NewsHour. Additional excerpts appeared at LitHub, AlterNet, and Salon.com. Cashin spoke on the Joe Madison Show, was interviewed for the program The Young Turks, and appeared on Wisconsin Public Radio’s The Joy Cardin Show and Dallas Public Radio's Think.
More media is forthcoming, including new op-eds, reviews, and radio interviews.
