Exploring Anti-Miscegenation Laws Through the Film "Loving" LIMITED
Feedback form is now closed.
Limited Capacity seats available

In 1967, the Supreme Court at last ruled that laws prohibiting interracial marriage were unconstitutional. The couple at the center of this battle were Richard and Mildred Loving. Richard, a white man, and Mildred, a black woman, had been arrested, jailed, and banned from entering their home state of Virginia. Mildred, terribly homesick for and her family and rural upbringing, wrote to Robert Kennedy for help, starting a series of events that changed the U.S. forever and still impacts us today. This 2016 film, nominated for numerous awards and selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, beautifully tells their story. If time, we will also learn more about anti-miscegenation laws in the United States.
