The Story of the Lovings Has Been Made Into a Movie

One of my favorite events in history has been made into a movie called Loving. It is about the Lovings who were jailed for their marriage, because mixed-race marriages were illegal in their home state of Virginia (and 16 other states at the time). Their fight led to Supreme Court decision that made mixed-race marriages legal everywhere in the US. It premiers Nov 4.

Here is my blog post about them: How the Anti-Miscegenation (Race-Mixing) Laws Were Overturned.

Here is the trailer for the movie: Loving trailer
