Using Photographs to Teach Social Justice | Legal Action: The Supreme Court

The lessons in this series build background knowledge about a particular social justice issue and address at least one English language arts skill. The lessons also help students “read” photographs by having them describe what they see, identify mood and point of view, analyze color, light, and shadow, and determine how the photographs fit into the context in which they were taken.This lesson focuses on the legal case of Loving v. Virginia. Although it is not as well known as Brown v. Board of Education (which helped end legal segregation), it was an important ruling with far-reaching effects. In 1967, the Supreme Court ruled that laws that prohibited marriages between African Americans and white Americans were in violation of the Constitution. In this lesson, students analyze a photograph of Mildred Jeter Loving and Richard Loving—the interracial couple that took the case of their marriage all the way to the Supreme Court—as a springboard for exploring the case, and for thinking about analogous issues in more recent times.
