Loving Day is a nation-wide celebration of the 1967 court case that struck down anti-miscegenation laws that made interracial marriage illegal. It is a unique opportunity to unite all racial backgrounds under an umbrella of understanding, legacy, and community-building.
Ebony Road Players has celebrated Loving Day for five years now - and is proudly the only celebration for Loving Day in the Midwest of its size! Come join us for our annual fundraiser and support the great programming Ebony Road Players brings to West Michigan!
