Set during the tumultuous Civil Rights movement, this documentary tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple who were repeatedly arrested and forced to leave the state of Virginia for being married at a time when it was forbidden for whites and blacks to marry.

Forbid certain folks
from marrying? Good thing that
doesn’t happen now!
