Join us for a screening of "Loving." This historical drama is based on the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, a couple whose 1958 arrest for interracial marriage in Virginia began a legal battle that would end with the Supreme Court’s historic 1967 decision that invalidated state anti-miscegenation laws.

Panel discussion to follow screening, moderated by hapa.me creator Kip Fulbeck and with panelists Ken Tanabe and Catherine Leung of Loving Day, the world’s largest network of multiethnic community celebrations. Tanabe is its founder.

Presented in conjunction with "hapa.me - 15 years of the hapa project," now on view at the Japanese American National Museum through October 28, 2018. Visit janm.org/hapa-me for info about the exhibition and related programs.

This program is included with JANM admission. Please RSVP at the ticket link:
