Interracial marriage and relationships are no longer generally frowned upon in our society and is, according to statistics, becoming commonplace since the 1967 US Supreme Court ruling that effectively ended anti-miscegenation laws (Interracial Marriage Flourishes in the US).
This current freedom to choose our partners that we now enjoy has come a long way to be possible and was very rare in colonial history.

However, despite society’s disapproval, some brave souls still ventured to choose their personal happiness and risked social isolation.Working with the Charter cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed.The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on Book TV on C-SPAN2.It is also believed that a large percentage of Black men marry White women.This is often cited as one of the causes of lower marriage rates among Black women.
