The Loving Generation

Lacey Schwartz-Delgado, Documentary, in English, 41 Minutes, USA, 2018

“The Loving Generation” is a first-of-its-kind look into the generation of children born to one black parent and one white parent just before — and after — the United States Supreme Court’s 1967 "Loving vs. Virginia" decision, which overturned all remaining anti-miscegenation laws in the United States. More specifically, the interviewees are biracial individuals born between 1965 and 1985.

The story of “The Loving Generation” is the story of how these biracial children — many of whom solely identify as Black — experience race within a divided America, and how their visibility (or invisibility), accomplishments and experiences provide a fascinating and unique window into the borderland between “blackness” and “whiteness”, and, in some cases, explode our ideas about race and identity.
