Ashlyn and Ra'Montae: Love in black and white
We end our "Forbidden Love" series in the United States. Ashlyn is white and Ra'Montae is black, making them a so-called "interracial" couple. But where they live in Kansas, this makes them the target of insults, racial slurs and even death threats. This is their story told in their own words.
A collaboration between Arte, RFI and FRANCE 24, "Forbidden Love" brings you the stories of modern-day "Romeo and Juliets", whose relationships are faced with major obstacles, be they religious, racial, political or social.
