The Loving Story screening with filmmaker Nancy Buirski

Event Date:

Saturday, May 5, 2012 - 3:00pm

Watch & Discuss The Loving Story with filmmaker Nancy Buirski.

This documentary film tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, and their family’s struggle for dignity set against the backdrop of historic anti-miscegenation sentiments in the U.S.

Arrested for being an interracial couple living in Virginia in the 1960s, their racially-charged criminal trial and landmark Supreme Court Case, Loving v. Virginia (1967), changed history.
