Richard and Mildred ‘Loving’ were like any other young couple who wanted to get married – except for the fact that, in 1958, their marriage was illegal because Mildred was black.
They drove to Washington, D.C. to get married, but were arrested after they returned home to Virginia. Understandably appalled by the laws preventing them from being together, they were determined to fight – and their battle would take them all the way to the United States Supreme Court.
Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga star as Richard and Mildred in ‘Loving’, the true story of a landmark in the struggle for civil rights in America.
