Featured Documentary: “The Loving Story”, 77 minutes.

Q & A discussion with guest speakers Dana Haley-Vicente, Ph.D. and Brian Vicente

 

When Mildred and Richard Loving were arrested in Virginia in July 1958 for violating a state law that banned marriage between people of different races, such laws had been on the books in most states since the seventeenth century. Still, the Lovings never expected to be woken up in their bedroom in the middle of the night and arrested. The Loving Story brings to life their fight for the recognition of their marriage, all the way to the Supreme Court.

Guest speakers Dana Haley-Vicente, Ph.D. and Brian Vicente will share their personal experiences during the discussion immediately following the film.
