The story of Richard and Mildred Loving
Loving, now in theatres, tells the incredible true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, a Virginia couple who fought for their right to interracial marriage. Materials from our archives featuring the Lovings are currently on display at the Library: an article from a 1967 issue of Time and a photo essay from a 1966 issue of Life. Periodical archives are available for consultation by Library patrons upon request. We are also featuring a recently-published children’s book about the Lovings and other books from our collection about interracial marriage, race relations, civil rights, and modern families. All books on display are available for checkout!
