Event: SBA Diversity Week Movie Viewing: “The Loving Story”
Event Date: April 3, 2014
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:45 PM
Public Event:

As part of Stetson’s Diversity week, sponsored by Student Life and SBA, we are pleased to be able to present an evening viewing of “The Loving Story.” A delicious dinner of Fazios Pizza will be served!

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 Lovings, an interracial couple, fell in love and married at a critical time in American
history, and, because of a confluence of social and political turmoil our  reluctant heroes bring about change where previously no one else could. They are paired with two young and ambitious lawyers who are driven to pave the way
for Civil Rights and social justice through an historic Supreme Court ruling, changing the country’s story forever.

The Loving Story rouses discussion and debate about interracial marriage and tolerance in the US. It brings together all groups with stakes in marriage equality to seek out commonalties and understanding. It examines the miscegenation crime the Lovings were accused of committing – its roots based in slavery and its lingering, pervasive impact.
