 Multiracial Media and Swirl Nation Blog Announce Sponsorship of

NYC and LA Multiracial Meetups To View Loving directed by Jeff Nichols

Multiracial Media, (http://multiracialmedia.com/stagin/) and Swirl Nation Blog (http://www.swirlnationblog.com/) two leading voices of the Multiracial Community are proud to announce that they are sponsoring Multiracial Meetups (gatherings of those in the Multiracial Community) in New York City and Los Angeles to view the new film, Loving (directed by Jeff Nichols). The film dramatizes the landmark Supreme Court case, Loving v. Virginia, which held as unconstitutional laws that made interracial marriage illegal and showcases the bravery of the eponymous Mildred and Richard Loving who fought against anti-miscegenation laws of their home state of Virginia because of their love and devotion to one another.

These Multiracial Meetups, which are aimed at raising awareness of issues concerning the Multiracial Community and at bringing together members of the Community, are scheduled to take place as follows:

  • Friday, November 4, at 9:45 at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 Theater on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Participants are encouraged to buy tickets in advance online at: https://www.amctheatres.com/movie-theatres/new-york-city/amc-loews-lincoln-square-13 – 2116-1142016-26663
  • Friday, Friday, November 4th at 8:30pm, at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood (Drinks at the lobby bar at 7pm prior to the show). Participants are encouraged to buy tickets in advance online at: https://www.arclightcinemas.com/movie/loving

Says Sarah Ratliff, co-founder of Multiracial Media, “As the child of an interracial couple who married in 1960 (when it was legal in just a handful of states before the landmark decision to legalize it nationally) and faced tremendous discrimination from within the family and without, this film means everything to me. It’s almost like being able to go back in time and to watch my mother and father and their struggles. Without the Lovings and others like them, including my parents, I literally would not be here.”Added, Jen Fisch, co-founder of Swirl Nation Blog, “I’m the mother of biracial child. The Lovings’ story is beyond powerful for me. Without them, my life would literally not be the same.”
