The greatest love story in American history is, appropriately enough, the Loving story. 
This play tells the the true story of Richard Loving, a white Virginia construction worker, and Mildred Jeter, an African American, who married in the 1950s. As a result of their bravery and willingness to stand together the ban on inter-racial marriage was deemed unconstitutional. 
ITC was proud to partner with the Robert Russa Moton Museum and the Citizen Leadership & Social Justice Education Program at Longwood University to present a Valentine's Day weekend program of events. Our goal was to promote the power of racially-unified community spirit through theatre, art, music, dance, and other activities for the commonwealth of Virginia.
