The Story

We’re coming together to celebrate the 300th Anniversary of New Orleans and the diversity of families that make our city great!

Please support the New Orleans Loving Festival in presenting WE ARE  FAMILY, a tricentennial photography exhibition featuring amazing families that embody the fabric of our blended community. With contemporary politics and culture causing deep divisions across society, exhibitions like WE ARE FAMILY help us challenge racism and bigotry, and affirm that we are stronger together.

The photography exhibition will be held in October of 2018 at the Museum Studies Program Gallery at Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO). Your contributions will be used for photographer fees, printing and framing, promotion materials, and student honorariums.


The Loving Festival is a Multiracial Community Celebration and Film Festival that challenges racism through outreach and education. The Loving Festival was inspired by the actions of a Hammond, Louisiana  Justice of the Peace who refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple in 2009.

The Loving Festival is an important community platform for showcasing films and other creative works that  explore racial stereotypes and inspire people to work together for racial justice. The Loving Festival also honors the legacy of Richard and 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.
