Come celebrate LOVING DAY with us and commemorate Loving v. Virginia (1967), the Supreme Court case that legalized interracial marriages in America. Loving Day fights racial prejudice through education and builds multicultural community. It’s a global network of annual celebrations that you can host or attend. It’s also an educational campaign that you can be a part of every day. Find out more about Loving Day at www.lovingday.org, and join us at ANTENNA GALLERY during our regular gallery hours 12-5pm for great music and food by THE BURRITO JUKE JOINT and then for a 7:00pm free film screening of:

MR. & MRS. LOVING by Richard Friedenberg
In Central Point, Virginia, a sleepy rural town where blacks and whites have long lived in harmony, Richard Loving, a poor white laborer, falls in love with Bean Jeter, a young black woman. Mixed-race relationships are accepted here, but marriage, in 1960, is illegal under a miscegenation law dating from slave times. (105 minutes) Seating is limited. Hosted by the New Orleans Loving Festival, Press Street/Antenna and The Burrito Juke Joint.
