Spring Film Series: The Loving Story

Mildred and Richard Loving knew it was technically illegal for them to live as a married couple in Virginia because she was of African American and Native American descent and he was white. But they never expected to be woken up in their bedroom and arrested one night in 1958. The documentary brings to life the Lovings’ marriage and the legal battle that followed through little-known filmed interviews and photographs shot for Life magazine. Made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle program.

Shown at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum. Running time: 77 minutes. Admission is FREE!
