Trailer: ‘The Loving Generation’ to Air in Honor of Black History Month

Topic Studios has released a new series just in time for Black History Month.

Starting Tuesday, the media entity will debut The Loving Generation on Topic.com, a work that is described as “a four-episode digital documentary series about the generation of Americans born to one Black parent and one White parent between the years 1965-1985.”

The series takes its name from the landmark 1967 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court “Loving v. Virginia.” The ruling made interracial marriage legal in all 50 states.

“The series is the first of its kind to train a lens of this particular generation of Americans, many of whom have become recognized leaders in their respective fields of journalism, the arts, sports and politics,” according to a press release sent to EBONY. “The series includes testimonies from numerous individuals—including award-winning journalist Nikole Hannah Jones, academic Melissa Harris Perry and novelist Mat Johnson—exploring issues around identity, belonging, race relations, politics, family, community, culture and ambition.”

Each episode will be released every Tuesday throughout the month of February.
