'The Loving Story' Film and Discussion with Prof. Bobby Cummings and Keith Champagne
6:30 p.m. "The Loving Story" will be shown in Black Hall, Room 150 with Professor Bobby Cummings, Director of Africana & Black Studies, and Keith Champagne, Associate Dean of Student Success facilitating a discussion following the film.
The "Loving Story" is the moving account of Richard and Mildred Loving, who were arrested in 1958 for violating Virginia's ban on interracial marriage. Their struggle culminated in a Supreme Court decision, Loving v. Virginia (1967) which overturned Virginia's anti-miscegenation law and similar laws throughout the United States.
