Abstract:

In Central Point, Virginia, Richard Loving, a poor white laborer, falls in love with Mildred "Bean" Jeter, a beautiful young black woman, and Richard Loving, a poor Virginia laborer. Mixed-race relationships are accepted here, but marriage, in 1960, is illegal under a miscegenation law dating from slave times. Bean becomes pregnant, and despite their families' fears, Richard insists on marrying her. They are arrested and thrown in jail. Having to choose between a three year jail sentence or a 25-year banishment from the state of Virginia, the Lovings choose freedom and move to Washington, D.C. Inspired by the speeches of Martin Luther King, Bean writes a letter to then Attorney-General Robert Kennedy requesting that the law be changed so that she and Richard can go home. Her letter reaches young ACLU attorney Bernie Cohen, who sees a great opportunity for social justice in this landmark case. Seven years after their banishment, The Lovings' case is heard by the Supreme Court. In a landmark ruling, the Court declares the Virginia law unconstitutional.
