Please join us on Loving Day for a Free Film Screening of:

THE LOVING STORY by Nancy Buirsky

A racially-charged criminal trial and a heart-rending love story converge in this documentary about Richard and Mildred Loving, set during the turbulent Civil Rights era. The Loving Story is a story of love and the struggle for dignity set against a backdrop of historic anti-miscegenation sentiments in the U.S.

The Lovings, an interracial couple, fell in love and married at a critical time in American history, and, because of a confluence of social and political turmoil our reluctant heroes bring about change where previously no one else could. They are paired with two young and ambitious lawyers who are driven to pave the way for Civil Rights and social justice through an historic Supreme Court ruling, changing the country’s story forever. (2011, 77 minutes) Limited Seating.

We will open our screening with a short by South Carolina filmmaker, O.K. Keyes:

50% By O.K. Keyes & Elizabeth Rosa Houck Zozaya, 2015

 This quirky, campy autobiographical short explores intersectionality and identity with the lighthearted confidence of being true to oneself.
