The story of Mildred and Richard Loving  

The greatest love story in American history is appropriately enough, the Loving story. In the 1950s, Richard Loving, a white Virginia construction worker, loved Mildred Jeter, an African American. Virginia state law prohibited inter-racial marriage, and, when state authorities found out Richard and Mildred had married, the couple was arrested. Come follow the lives and tenacity of the Mildred and Richard as they fought unjust racist laws reaffirming the most essential right of all Americans: the freedom to love whomever you want.
