Event Date:

Tuesday, March 25, 2014 - 6:30pm

This spring, the Created Equal Film Series is showcasing groundbreaking cinema about the history of equality, civil rights and race at Brooklyn Historical Society. On March 25th, come watch and discuss The Loving Story with Co-Producer Patricia Romeu, and CUNY Professor of Law, Victor Goode.

Award-winning documentary The Loving Story tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, and their family's struggle for dignity set against the backdrop of anti-miscegenation laws in the US. Arrested in Virginia in the 1960's for being an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred experienced a racially-charged criminal trial that culminated in the landmark Supreme Court Case, Loving v. Virginia (1967), that legalized interracial marriage and altered the course of history.
