A northern Virginia high school that is removing Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee’s name could be renamed for an interracial couple.
A 21-member committee appointed by the Arlington County school board is recommending that Washington-Lee High School be renamed as Washington-Loving.
The proposed new name would honor Mildred and Richard Loving, a Virginia couple whose legal challenge led the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down the state’s law banning interracial marriage.
A second option proposed by the committee would be to rename the school Washington-Liberty.
