MIXED MESSAGES.2 is hosted by Press Street’s Antenna Gallery in conjunction with the 2nd Annual New Orleans Loving Festival – a multiracial community celebration that challenges racial discrimination through outreach and education. NOLF is modeled after “Loving Day” multicultural celebrations across the country that organize people to fight racial prejudice through education, and build multicultural community. Loving Day also honors the legacy of Richard & Mildred Loving, the interracial couple whose 1967 landmark civil rights lawsuit “Loving v. Virginia,” ended all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States. Find out more about Loving Day at www.lovingday.org.
The “Loving Festival” is made possible with support from: LovingDay.Org, Ashé Cultural Arts Center, Brian Chinhema, Café Istanbul, Chartiable Film Network, Cupcake Fairies, Gretchen Faust, The Fledgling Fund, Home Box Office, Beryl Johns, Elton Jones, The Joan Mitchell Center, National Endowment for the Humanities, Ted Quant, Victoria Mahoney, Nate Martin, Keith Weldon Medley, New Orleans Film Society, New Orleans Food Coop, New Orleans Healing Center, New Orleans Video Voices, PATOIS: New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival, Press Street, The Twomey Center for Peace Through Justice (Loyola University, New Orleans) and Whole Foods Market.
