The New Orleans Loving Festival Continues This Week
Across the country, Tuesday is Loving Day. But here in New Orleans, we have a full slate of activities surrounding the celebration of the famed 1967 Supreme Court decision that banished laws against mutiracial marriages. So, the celebration is referred to as a festival. A series of film screenings and live prose focused on multiracial identity have already sprouted up around the city. But with the big day still not yet arrived, there's more on tap this week.
On Tuesday, the Festival will host a free screening of The Loving Story, which chronicles the Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court decision in a documentary called The Loving Story. The doc tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, who married in the District of Columbia to escape a Virginia ban on marriages between white and non-white people. On return to Virginia, they were charged with violating the statue, but their case eventually ended up in front of the Supreme Court. The film screening is slated for the Ashe Cultural Center, and starts at 7:10 p.m. It will be immediately followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker, Nancy Buirsky, via Skype.
On Wednesday, the festival will offer some Loving Lagniappe, with a screening of What's on Your Plate? This doc follows two multiracial inner-city girls who explore their place in the food chain. The pair make stops at school cafeterias, fast food chains and other spots to ask questions about where their food comes from, and how it gets to their plate. This screening is at Cafe Istanbul, and begins at 7 p.m. It's presented in coordination with the New Orleans Food Co-op's Member Appreciation Day.
After that, the city is free to go back to its regurlarly scheduled loving.
