Everybody in LA! The Mixed Roots Film and Literary Festival!
- The Mixed Roots Film and Literary Festival starts tomorrow - from June
12th (Loving Day) until Saturday, June 14th! Come to the beautiful
Japanese American National Museum to celebrate films and literary
works exploring racially and culturally mixed heritages. Loving Day
and the Association of MultiEthnic Americans (AMEA) are proud sponsors
of this event.
The Festival is inclusive: anyone who identifies as Mixed, has a
trans-racial or trans-cultural adoptive family, or who supports
interracial and intercultural relationships is welcome.
Acclaimed author Rebecca Walker will present the Mixed Roots Film and
Literary Festival Opening Address for the kick-off Loving Day party,
celebrating the Supreme Court decision which affirmed the right of
people of different races to marry, on June 12, 2008, at 7pm. DJ Life
and DJ Vika spin decades of dance floor classics. The party is held in
conjunction with the Loving Day celebration in New York City hosted by
Loving Day and World Up.
