Some love stories can change the world. Come see the Golden Globe nominated film "Loving,” a movie of one couple’s love in the context of race in the 1950s/1960s United States. It was Mildred and Richard Loving’s unbreakable marriage that caused the Supreme Court to invalidate state laws prohibiting interracial marriage. FREE (donations accepted to cover the cost of the film license). 7-9:30pm, Friday, April 21st, at the James Street Mennonite Church building, 323 W. James St, Lancaster, PA. 17603. Join us for an included post-film group conversation (20 min) led by the YWCA, to share space with others for working through the complexities of our racialized society.
The film is sponsored by Laurel Street Mennonite Church and James Street Mennonite Churche, the YWCA of Lancaster, and Eastern Mennonite University, and is a non-religious event for the entire Lancaster community.
