Ethiopian born Irish actress Ruth Negga is making news again and there is now talk of an Oscar!
According to Entertainment weekly, Negga and co-star Jeff Nichols’ “play the real-life Virginia couple Mildred and Richard Loving, who in 1958 were arrested in their bedroom for the crime of matrimony. Mildred was black and Richard was white — and that was indeed illegal at the time. And, in fact, it remained so until 1967, when the Lovings changed that, taking their case all the way to the Supreme Court. In a unanimous decision by the justices, the couple’s arrest was ruled unlawful, along with all state prohibitions against interracial marriage.” (May 16 2016)
