"Loving" Author to Speak at Huntsville Public Library

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Author and Huntsville native, Sheryll Cashin is speaking tonight (10/11) at 6:30 at the main branch of the Huntsville Madison County Library. She is a Professor of Law at Georgetown University, teaches Constitutional Law, and Race and American Law among other subjects. She writes about race relations and inequality in America. Her new book, Loving, will release in June, 2017 in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision in Loving v. Virginia, which struck down bans on interracial marriage. In it she explores the history and future of interracial intimacy and its potential impact on American culture and politics. She chats live with Ginny Kennedy (who attended Blossomwood Elementary School with her!) about the book, the history it contains and her hopes for the future of race relations. More information about the talk at the library is at www.hmcpl.org.
