The Loving StoryDirector Nancy Buirski joins Sean McCord to talk about her documentary The Loving Story. Using found footage from the 1960s and contemporary interviews, this film tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving: an interracial couple who were married at a time when interracial marriage was illegal in 16 states. This film follows the couple and their young lawyers as they prepare for the landmark 1967 Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court case that would lead to the legalization of interracial marriage in all states.
