Loving movie costumes on display...

Loving is the new movie biopic written and directed by Jeff Nichols and based on the life experiences of 'Mildred and Richard Loving', an interracial couple sentenced to prison in Virginia, America in 1958 for getting married which broke the state's racial segregation laws. The married black woman and white man later became plaintiffs in the landmark 1967 U.S. Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia which invalidated discriminatory state laws prohibiting interracial marriage.
