Photo | Uncommon Common Folk: Richard and Mildred Loving came from humble roots and likely could never imagined how they could make an impact for Civil Rights.

They weren’t martyrs, and didn’t want to be. They weren’t symbols, and didn’t want to be. They were two people in love who wanted to be with each other and their family.
