What a beautiful love story. Thank you Mildred and Richard Loving for your fight. Love wins always. #interacialcouples
“Loving” is the real-life story of the human side of interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving. As a black woman and white man from Virginia who married in 1958, the state criminally prosecuted them under anti-miscegenation laws. They spent the next nine years fighting for the right to be a family.
Their fight made its way to the Supreme Court in 1967. With its victory, the landmark case established marriage as a constitutionally protected fundamental right, a central precedent to subsequent “fundamental rights” cases before the Supreme Court like 2015’s gay marriage ruling, and became part of Constitutional DNA, appearing in every “ConLaw” case book at law schools across the country.
Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Mildred (Ruth Negga) are the stars of Loving who were sentenced to prison in Virginia in 1958 for breaking a law prohibiting interracial marriages and later took their case to the Supreme Court in 1967.
