Virginia police once threw Richard and Mildred Loving into jail. She was black and he was white, and they had gotten married. It was 1958, and in Virginia that was against the law. Monday marks 50 years since the Loving’s won a case before the Supreme Court and Virginia law was overturned.
Another Virginia couple, Charlie and Marcia Russell, traveled to Richmond Monday to honor the Lovings. They spoke with reporter Mallory Noe-Payne.
