'Loving:' how an interracial couple's love changed history

Just as a caustic election has laid bare loose threads in the US social fabric, a new film has returned to the country’s all-too-recent era of deep racial segregation. “Loving” — which entered wide release in time for the US Thanksgiving holiday — follows the romance of a black woman and a white man in mid-20th century America, when laws in some states forbade interracial marriages. The historical drama is based on a decade-long legal battle that culminated in a landmark Supreme Court decision, declaring unconstitutional legislation banning interracial marriage, known as anti-miscegenation laws.
