Hello people - on Sunday (tomorrow!!!) we're presenting a festival to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Loving vs Virginia, the Supreme Court Case that de-criminalized relationships across racial lines.

In 1967, a mixed race couple brought a case to the Supreme Court to legalize their relationship, and won. Mildred Loving passed away a little while ago, and we're presenting a festival to celebrate their victory. There will be several thousand people, and I guess you can think of it as a NY update of Love Parade in Berlin. It's a big outdoor festival!!!

come out to the show!

388 U.S. 1 (1967)[1], was a landmark civil rights case in which the United States Supreme Court declared Virginia's anti-miscegenation statute, the "Racial Integrity Act of 1924", unconstitutional, thereby overturning Pace v. Alabama (1883) and ending all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States.

On June 8 we celebrate their victory - there will be music from all over the world: India, Russia, China, Brazil, South Africa, France, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Iraq, Tibet, Israel, Palestine, England, Jamaica, Nigeria etc etc - and yes, it's about digital media art as well. There will be surprise guests throughout the day.
