On this date in 1977, the first legal interracial marriage in North Carolina occurred.
That state officially recognized John A. Wilkinson's marriage to Lorraine Mary Turner. Wilkinson was Black, and Turner was white in April of that same year.
North Carolina was one of over 15 states in 1967 whose laws were eventually changed to accept interracial marriage legally.
