HIST 3570: Gender and Sex in History

Interracial Marriage

Consider what kinds of evidence might exist around the existence of, and laws regulating interracial marriage and relationships:

  • Laws
  • Court Cases
  • News articles about court cases
  • News about lynching or violence against couples or individuals
  • Oral histories or interviews with couples or individuals
  • Documentaries
  • Family photos
  • Census information

*Note, while the terms are now considered offensive, you may also need to use historical terms such as "miscegenation," "anti-miscegenation," "anti-race mixing" or "anti-integration" when looking for primary sources on this topic.
