When Mildred and Richard Loving were arrested in July 1958, in Virginia, for violating a state law that banned marriage between people of different races, such laws had been on the books in most states since the seventeenth century. But the Lovings never expected to be woken up in their bedroom in the middle of the night and arrested. The documentary brings to life the Lovings' marriage and the legal battle that followed through little-known filmed interviews and photographs shot for Life magazine.

Join guest speaker Armondo Collins as we discuss the issues around this important court case and story.

What is Freedom? What is Equality? Join us as we watch and discuss the films of Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle
