Loving Movie



Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia. Loving Movie

I'm well familiar with the story of the Lovings (how cool is that last name?), it's a beautiful and inspiring love story. If you haven't seen their story before, this movie looks like it is well done and I urge you to go see it. Particularly if you have an interracial family but especially if you don't.
Be blessed.

Sincerely, Helen Willis, The Zebress
