Gold digger, Nigger lover. Whore! Those were the names shouted at Iris by military brass in 1961 when she stood before them and asked to marry the man she loved. Ray and Iris Green were repeatedly told no by Ray’s US Air Force superiors. They were denied not just because she was English and he was American - but also because she was white and he was black. The young couple refused to take no for an answer and eventually married.


The Marriage Battle: A Family Tradition is a story about American culture as told through one family by Ray and Iris’s daughter, Sue. 


Like her parents, Sue fought for the right to marry the person she loved. And almost 50 years to the day of the Loving decision which struck down anti-miscegenation laws in the US, The Defense of Marriage Act was repealed. Same-sex marriage was finally legal and Sue married her love and now wife, Robin.

Sue is a past board member of the National Lesbian and Gay Journalists Association and the national board for Unity: Journalists for Diversity. She has also worked for the U.S. State Department to teach about diversity in news coverage to journalists in Serbia.

Robin J. Phillips has spent most of her career as a print and digital journalist specializing in business and technology. She has taught journalism at Arizona State University and around the country has advised newsrooms, companies and municipalities on the use of social media as a marketing and research tool. She now works at a digital marketing company based in Phoenix. Robin lives with her wife, Sue Green, in North Carolina.
