Public Radio Reporter Seeking Couples In New England For Story On Interracial/Mixed Marriage.
My name is Sally Jacobs and I am a reporter doing a project for WGBH radio in Boston on interracial marriage in connection with the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing the practice. I am looking for couples in New England (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont) who have a compelling story of challenge, triumph, passion, hardship or adventure.
I am also looking for some particular experiences:
- Interracial couples who divorced in the mid 1980s.
- Couples who married before interracial marriage became legal in 1967.
- Young/millennial couples who met on an interracial dating website.
- Those with a compelling story from any time period.
If you live in any of the six New England states, please e-mail me a description of your story, long or short, at email@example.com.
