Phyl Newbeck’s Virginia Hasn’t Always Been for Lovers is a clearly written, accessible, well-organized, and remarkably researched history of the path-breaking Loving case. . . . Of particular interest is Newbeck’s seemingly indefatigable effort to interview everyone involved in Loving and other significant cases and her assiduous efforts to track down the documentary record.”Michael Meltsner, Harvard Law School and Northeastern Law School
Newbeck’s exploration of the antimiscegenation laws in America touches the very core of racial discrimination and race hatred in America: sexual intimacy between races. Using the Lovings as the tale-telling prism, she does an excellent job of illuminating the dreadful lifeand happy deathof these racist laws and folkways.”Howard Ball, author of Murder in Mississippi
