Named for the couple that fought the ultimate form of housing discrimination when they were barred from living in Virginia because of their interracial marriage, our annual Mildred and Richard Loving Civil Rights Award honors civil rights leaders and thinkers, those who have worked to change the course of history, those who have challenged how history is written, and those who are making history today.
