There couldn't have been a better couple for this fight..she was a soft spoken sweetheart of a good girl and he was a rough and tough guy who did masonry and raced cars..the Loving's resonated with everyone..cause you could absolutely see why they loved each other! Unfortunately he was stolen from us by a drunk driver!

Thank you for such an informative video! I am truly grateful to Mildred and Richard Loving for having the courage and bravery to fight back against the state of Virginia when they were arrested for being in an interracial marriage! Loving v. Virginia redefined marriage in the United States. It allows couples like me and my fiancé to marry without the fear of being arrested or put in jail. Stand up for what you believe in and fight for it!!

“Prosecution?” Nope. This was “persecution.” I can hardly imagine this as a legal issue— and I’m grateful for that.
