Editorial Reviews

Product Description

On June 2, 1958, a white man named Richard Loving and his part-black, part-Cherokee fiancée Mildred Jeter traveled from Caroline County, VA ,to Washington, D.C., to be married. At the time, interracial marriage was illegal in 21 states, including Virginia. Back home two weeks later, the newlyweds were arrested, tried and convicted of the felony crime of "miscegenation." Two young ACLU lawyers took on the Lovings' case, fully aware of the challenges posed. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously in favor of the Lovings on June 12, 1967. This precedent-setting decision resulted in 16 states being ordered to overturn their bans on interracial marriage.

Review

…a perfect time capsule that illuminates the racist past of our country with a uniquely personal and poignant emphasis --Hollywood Reporter

If a documentary can inspire us to look past the politics and punditry to recognize the humanity of the people our laws demonize, then it has certainly done the nation a service. --Mother Jones

Its not just a story of a forbidden marriage, but of quiet people who were underestimated by everyone. --Colin Firth
