Join The Gist of Freedom as we talk to actress Winter Lee about her role in "Loving" a film which celebrates interracial love, marriage and family! WWW.blogtalkRadio.com/TheGISTofFREEDDOM.com 8pm ET RICHMOND, Va. — The story of Richard and Mildred Loving was made into a “major motion picture” it was filmed in Central Virginia. The Lovings were an interracial Virginia couple arrested in the 1950s for violating state law that prohibited interracial marriage. The couple sued, and in 1967, their case was heard by the United States Supreme Court. The movie stars Ruth Negga (World War Z, The Samaritan) and Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty). “Mildred and Richard Loving were not political activists,” producer Nancy Buirski said. “They considered themselves to be an ordinary couple who loved each other and were willing to fight for the right to live together and raise their children in peace in their home state. We are grateful for the warm welcome we have received in Virginia as we seek to do justice to the story of this courageous couple.” Buirski also produced and directed The Loving Story, a documentary that aired on HBO.
