Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving, who married and then spent the next nine years ghting for the right to live as a family in their hometown.

A UNITED KINGDOM

Wednesday 25 October, 7:30pm 111min | PG | UK | 2016

 In 1947, Seretse Khama, the King of Botswana, met Ruth Williams, a London office worker. Their proposed marriage was challenged not only by their families but by the British and South African governments. South Africa threatened the British: either thwart the couple or be denied access to South African uranium and gold and face the risk of South Africa invading Botswana. We have a guest speaker from PRENO (Portsmouth Race Equality Network Organisation).
