Who was your first love? Why did you break up? Was it because of your family, religious differences, or you were from different cultural backgrounds? There are many reasons couples break up, but the law should not be one of them.
RLP Productions presents a story of love, race and tolerance inspired by the landmark case of Richard and Mildred Loving (Loving vs. State of VA 1967). The Lovings were charged with a felony crime for getting married because interracial marriage (miscegenation) was against the law for much of the 20th Century. But they fought back and won, taking their case all the way to the Supreme Court, because for them, love mattered.
Today, the fight continues for love and justice. From the fight for gay marriage to equality, almost every second someone, somewhere is challenging society's perceptions and attitudes about who should be with whom.
That Color Blind Kind of Love is exploring this human struggle for the right to love. So, join us in donating a dollar for love this weekend. Let's show that #LoveMatters and that we must fight for it 'til the very end. As Twyla says in the play, "Love should belong to whomever wants it."
Donate for love lost, love won and love on the horizon. $1 is all it takes.

"Richmond has some great hidden talent. It was my pleasure to be in attendance of such a wonderful theatrical production today at the WCVE-PBS Studios. Twyla and Sampson first fell in love over 100 years ago. Their romance time traveled through the ages. Inspired by the true love story of Richard and Mildred Loving, the casting was a journey through love, race and tolerance. It was very engaging and heartfelt. Blessings to the entire production! Great job!!!!!" (Audience Member, Paula Ellis-Adams).
