The Supreme Court rules that state laws banning interracial marriage are unconstitutional. Texas has had two laws against interracial marriage since Sam Houston signed them into law in 1837. The civil statute stated, “It shall not be lawful for any person of Caucasian blood or their descendants to intermarry with Africans or the descendants of Africans.” There is a separate law that makes it a. crime for a Negro and a white to “intermarry” or “live together as man and wife.” The last known test case involved a Fort Worth city ordinance in 1915.
