This documentary tells the inspiring and heart warming story of Mildred & Richard Loving an interracial couple who married in 1958 despite Virginia's anti-miscegenation laws. Film provided courtesy of Icarus Films. Refreshments will be provided & a discussion will follow the film. Loving Day Celebrations began as a graduate thesis project at Parsons the New School for Design in New York City. It was created by Ken Tanabe, a graphic designer, who accidentally discovered the Loving case while Googling something else. Being of interracial, intercultural, and international heritage himself, he was shocked that no one ever taught him about the case. He was also shocked to learn that no one else his age seemed to know about it either. That's how it all started. Celebrate with us: http://www.lovingday.org
