23andMe Brings to Light History’s Impact on Today’s Families
A generation ago interracial marriage was banned in Virginia and 15 other states. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court case decision repealing those laws, sparked by a courageous couple who dared to love one another, get married and challenge the law.
But for many couples that crossed racial lines, the Loving decision came too late.
Recently, a young law student in Virginia, Katrina Callsen, uncovered her own side of the story, with the help of modern science – a genetic test from 23andMe. Join Katrina and father in conversation as they share her discovery and the ripple effect it’s had on their family.
