Created Equal Film & Discussion series: "The Loving Story"

Cape Fear Museum and NHC Library invite you to see and discuss the documentary film "The Loving Story". This is the third in a series of three free film showings offered as an opportunity to continue discussions sparked by the national touring exhibit "For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights", that was on view at the Cape Fear Museum from November 10 through January 7. 

Mildred and Richard Loving knew it was technically illegal for them to live as a married couple in Virginia because she was of African American and Native American descent and he was white. But they never expected to be woken up in their bedroom and arrested one night in 1958. The documentary brings to life the Lovings’ marriage and the legal battle that followed through little-known filmed interviews and photographs shot for Life magazine.
