Mildred Loving, matriarch of interracial marriage, dies

Mildred Loving, a black woman whose challenge to Virginia's ban on interracial marriage led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling striking down such laws nationwide, has died.

Mildred Loving along with her husband Richard were the plaintiffs in Loving v. Virginia, the Supreme Court case that legalized interracial marriage in all fifty states.

You are correct Mr. and Mrs. Loving (1996) (TV). I like the movie as well.

As a activist in many areas [as well as someone who as dated Interracially] I have look up to the Lovings' as heroes.
