Ebony Road Players and Park Church are producing a weekend full of art and entertainment to recognize the multicultural families and inclusive communities in West Michigan. West Michigan Loving Day will also be a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Loving v Virginia Supreme Court case which struck down laws criminalizing interracial marriage nationwide.
Saturday, June 10 from 10am until 4pm, Ebony Road Players will offer this FREE community arts festival in the parking lot of Park Church. Included will be workshops, children's activities, music and vendors. Concurrently, inside the church, there will be film viewings and a culture box to capture stories of our participants. The Mosaic Film Experience and Wrinkle Creative will provide event coverage throughout the day.
Sunday, June 11, the celebration will conclude with the viewing of the HBO documentary, "The Loving Story." This will include a free lunch and a community discussion, all starting at 11:45am.
