Film Discussion: "The Loving Story"
Thursday, February 2, 2017 • 7 p.m., Dana 1D
The story of Richard Loving and Mildred Jeter, an interracial couple in 1950s Virginia who were arrested, tried, and convicted of the felony crime of miscegenation after they married, is powerfully explored in the documentary, "The Loving Story." The film shows the story of the couple and the two young ACLU lawyers that took the Loving's case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. After nine years of struggle, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously in their favor, resulting in sixteen states being ordered to overturn their bans on interracial marriage. Following the film, a discussion of the case and its impact will be led by Liana Pennington, Assistant Professor Department of Criminal Justice.
Co-sponsored with the Sociology Department.

Here they struggle to maintain their innocence in the face of constant uncertainty.
