Director Statement

The song 'Quiet Love' was written by Matshidiso Mohajane in response to the triumphant love story of an interracial couple's relentless pursuit of love in 1950's Virginia, USA. At a time of high racial tension across America this incredible couple; Richard and Mildred Loving, showed so much resilience in their pursuit of love and equality, paving the way for the law to be changed in Virginia for interracial marriages. Their story is proof of how love will always conquer hate. This narrative music video is a response to Mohajane's interpretation of the Loving's story and their legacy.
