Description:

Join us for a preview of the The Loving Story, part of the Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle series.

The Loving Story tells the dramatic story of Mildred and Richard Loving, a black and Native American woman married to a white man, which was against the law in 1958 Virginia, and of their famous anti-miscegenation case argued in the Supreme Court in 1967. It just won the Emmy for Outstanding Historical Programming! 

Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle is made possible by 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.
