Please join Press Street for a Gallery Opening & Reception for “MIXED MESSAGES.2 – Multiracial Identity Past and Present.”

Opening Reception: 6:00pm Saturday, June 9, 2012

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.
