The Loving Story

If you need to be convinced to see a free movie on a Saturday afternoon, OK, fine. We will convince you. As part of their spring film series, the Dossin Great Lakes Museum is screening The Loving Story, a movie about the Richard and Mildred Loving. In 1958, their interracial marriage sparked ire among local Jim Crow enthusiasts. Shortly after their marriage, the couple were arrested and forced to live in exile or else separate or face jail time. After raising their children in Washington, D.C., they wished to return home to be near their families. After contacting an American Civil Liberties Union attorney, they helped make laws against interracial marriage a thing of the past.
