DIRECTOR JEFF NICHOLS HOSTS "LOVING" PREMIER TO SUPPORT LRCH
LRCH alum and acclaimed director Jeff Nichols returned home to Little Rock in November to host the Arkansas premier of his newest film, "Loving". The ticketed event which was hosted by Lost Forty Brewing raised $10,000 that was donated to the Tiger Foundation. Two of the Little Rock Nine, Elizabeth Eckford and Thelma Mothershed Wair, were in attendance and were greeted with a standing ovation after they were acknowledged from the stage. "Loving" tells the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, the Virginia couple whose marriage led to the seminal 1967 Supreme Court case that overturned bans on interracial marriage.
