Loving V. Virginia- NYSAF


Destinee had the wonderful opportunity to play Earlene in the workshop of Loving V. Virginia. Loving V. Virginia is A soulful, period musical set in the early days of the civil rights movement. In 1958, Mildred and Richard Loving, a black woman and white man, married in Central Point, Virginia, violating their state’s laws against miscegenation. Their Romeo and Juliet love story ignited a firestorm in their communities, and sparked a landmark Supreme Court case. Their love – and their fight – paved the way for future generations to seek equality. From the award-winning team of Marcus Gardley (The House That Will Not Stand, Every Tongue Confess), Justin Ellington (The Seven, Stagger Lee), and Patricia McGregor (Hurt Village).
