Introduction

The Loving Story (2011) documents the relationship between Richard Loving and Mildred Jeter, whose marriage challenged Virginia's "miscegenation laws" enforcing racial segregation. The film examines how the love between two people led the charge for equality, justice, and ultimately struck down state laws banning interracial marriage in the United States.
