Loving vs. Virginia - A Documentary NovelChronicle Books
A thought-provoking gift for your true love, or anyone interested in civil rights history, the story of Mildred and Richard Loving is one of connection, love, devotion, injustice and victory. Written in spare verse by Patricia Hruby Powell, from the perspectives of Mildred and Richard, and dreamily illustrated by Shadra Strickland, it sweetly welcomes you into their budding, and then steadfast relationship--the kind of relationship for which humans strive. The only problem was that in 1955, in Caroline County, Virginia, their life together broke the law. Amidst segregation and prejudice, injustice and cruelty, they built a family against all odds. And finally, Mildred and Richard Loving became the heart of a Supreme Court case that sought justice by legalizing marriage between races.
