THE LOVING STORY - Special screening and reception at PWC, Sun, Feb 10 at 3pm

Please join us on Sunday, February 10, at 3:00pm, at the Prince William
Campus, for a special screening and reception for THE LOVING STORY as
part of the Immigration and Human Rights Film Series and Black History
Month celebration.

THE LOVING STORY is a story of love and the struggle for dignity set
against a backdrop of historic anti-miscegenation sentiments in the U.S.
The documentary is the definitive account of Loving v. Virginia – the
landmark 1967 Supreme Court decision that legalized interracial
marriage. Married in Washington, D.C., in 1958, the Lovings returned
home to Virginia where their marriage was declared illegal - he was
White, and she was Black and Native American. THE LOVING STORY takes us
behind the scenes of the legal challenges and the emotional turmoil
while documenting a seminal moment in history and reflecting a timely
message of marriage equality in a personal, human love story.

The screening is free and open to public with a light reception
provided. A question-and-answer session immediately follows the film.

For your information, here's a review of the details:
