"Loving" Film Screening and Discussion - Feb. 14

Join the LCCC Campus Activities Board for special screenings of the film "Loving" on Feb. 14 at noon and 6 p.m. in the Student Lounge with introduction and discussion  about race issues then and now to follow by Mary Ludwig, history professor.

About the film: Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.

About the discussion: The discussion will explore issues of race on the national and local level as well as issues right here on our campus. The Student Government Association Diversity Committee wants to hear your perspective on race and what it means to you. What have you observed and seen or experience here on campus or in the Cheyenne community? We are interested in hearing your perspectives and your voices!
