February is Black History Month.
In the fifty years since the Lovings won their landmark case, Loving v. Virginia, interracial intimacy - including cross-racial adoption, romance, and friendship - has exploded and Cashin speculates that it, combined with immigration, demographic, and generational change, contributes to an ascendant coalition of culturally dexterous whites and people of color. "Loving" is both a history of white supremacy and a hopeful treatise on the future of race relations in America.
Accessible and sharp, Cashin reanimates the possibility of a future where interracial understanding serves as a catalyst of a social revolution ending not in artificial color blindness, but in a culture where acceptance and difference are celebrated.
