Event Details

A Special Black History Month Presentation for Schools and Community Groups

 

THE LOVING STORY

Recommended for grades 9-12.  The film tells the story of Mildred and Richard Loving, an interracial couple who were married in the District of Columbia, where such unions were legal, and who were arrested after they moved to Virginia, where interracial marriage was a crime.  Their Supreme Court case resulted in the nation-wide invalidation of miscegenation laws.

 

Post-screening discussion with a special guest.

 

Schomburg Education is proud to join the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and  hundreds of cultural institutions across the country in special programming series to mark the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.  As part of the NEH’s Bridging Culture initiative, Created Equal uses the power of documentary films to spark public conversations about the changing meanings of freedom and equality in America.  The four films in the series tell the remarkable stories of individuals who have challenged the social and legal status quo of deeply rooted institutions, from slavery to segregation.
