The Office of Diversity and Inclusion and James Farmer Scholars Program to Host Screening of “Loving”

The following message is from the Office of Diversity and Inclusion:

The James Farmer Scholars program will be hosting a private screening of “Loving,” a film about an “interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving, who fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them,” according to a release from Focus Features. The screening will take place Dec. 11, 2016, at Regal Cinema Fredericksburg 14 from 2:30 p.m. – 5 p.m. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion will open ticket sales to all JFS members and to all members of the UMW community.

The cost of this is $9 per person, which does not include concessions or transportation. There will be limited seats available; therefore, first come first serve.

Payment must be made in advance in the James Farmer Scholars office, GW 312/Combs 101, by or before Friday, Dec. 9, no later than 5 p.m. Please call X2119 if interested.
