The Loving Film & Our Mixed Race and Multiracial Stories Are Oscar-Worthy!
If you attended the Mixed Remixed Festival last June, the largest nationwide gathering of mixed-race and multiracial people and famlies, you saw the amazing clip from the film, Loving, which has been on an award-season roll since its release last Fall. All the accolades are more than well-deserved.
Now, the lovely and talented Ruth Negga stands to win an Oscar for her powerful and honest portrayal of Mildred Loving, a true hero of our community!
Congratulations to Ruth Negga, Focus Features, director Jeff Nichols, Joel Edgerton and the whole cast on an amazing film. And THANK YOU for honoring this important story with your talents and grace.
Loving, the film, NOW on ITUNES and AMAZON!
Let’s make sure we support this film so Hollywood knows that when they show our stories on the big screen we show up in droves! #thisisloving
