5 things the LOVING movie taught me about love, faith, and equality. #ThisIsLoving

When word of the Loving movie first came out, I had no idea what it was about. Like most Americans, I had never heard of the Lovings. I didn't know that this incredibly couple help shaped the country that I love. I didn't realize that it was because of them, that I am allowed to marry the man that I love. Their story is like no other because the Lovings weren't an interracial couple fighting for the freedoms of America. They were simply a couple, a family, that fought for their right to live and love together – in the land of the free.

Loving’s Terri Abney explains how conversations about love can change the world. #ThisIsLoving

I had the pleasure of sitting down with Loving actress, Terri Abney, along with the lead actors and Director of the Loving film. We talked to all of them about bringing the Loving story back to life. This is a very touching story because it's true. It's the true story of the Lovings, who were sentenced to prison or to leave the state simply because they were an interracial couple that got married. With the hate and discrimination this still exists, this movie couldn't have released at a better time. There's a lot that we need to talk about and Terri Abney has a very important message for this generation about love, acceptance, and speaking out.
