Back in September NYLL asked people not living in the South to send in questions for a Q&A episode. Most of the questions were answered. However, Ivy from The Get podcast wanted to know about interracial relationships from the perspective of Southern women of color.
In anticipation of Valentine's Day and thanks to Ivy posing the question, Allison sits down with Benita Logsdon - a native of Alabama - on this episode to discuss her love story. The story includes details of her experiences regarding dating and eventually marrying her husband who is Caucasian. She talks about the challenges and joys of being in an interracial relationship.
The Who's that lady (from history)? is Mildred Loving, the woman who challenged and defeated Virginia's ban on interracial marriage.
