Description:
 Join George Bailey, PhD, Columbia College Chicago, to see this moving account of Richard and Mildred Loving. This couple was arrested in 1958 for violating Virginia's ban on interracial marriage. Their struggle culminated in a landmark Supreme Court decision, "Loving vs Virginia"(1967) which overturned anti-miscengenation laws in the U.S.

This film, the second of four documentaries, is part of the grant-funded "Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle" series of film, panel discussions and author programs which continues through March.


"Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle" is made possible through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, as part of its "Bridging Cultures" initiative, in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
