Celebrate Valentine's Day and Black History Month by watching Loving with Student Activities Council. Loving tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple who fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. It was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, which first jailed and banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia. Popcorn, couches, and tissues will be provided.
