Los Angeles, CA – Two newlyweds brought some love and optimism to a Los Angeles protest and went viral for their unrehearsed stop at an L.A. protest shortly after tying the knot. Hundreds of protesters watched on in awe and excitement as Producer Lara Sanders and Samuel Mekonnen of Talent Consult LA pulled up to the protests sporting their wedding attire in a white Rolls-Royce, which was filled with lovely flowers. The whole thing was caught on camera by NavinWatumulli, who was at the protest along with his wife and posted the video right away on Instagram.
It has been half a century after the U.S. supreme court legalized interracial marriage. Since then, the share of interethnic and interracial marriages in America has grown fivefold, from three percent of all weddings in 1967 to seventeen percent in 2015. Amid hurt, anger, and grief, the couple used the then protests in America in June 2020 as the backdrop to celebrate their love.
The couple tied the knot through Zoom before joining the march in their wedding attire. The touching moment was documented by onlookers, who shared photos and videos of the amazing pair holding hands and raising their fists in unity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
“During this time we decided to help promote disadvantaged African American business owners on our honeymoon tour through 7 states and 30 cities. It’s so important to give back to the community and help wherever we can. We are currently in talks with a publisher regarding a book that addresses biracial marriages in the US and abroad. On the family side of things we plan to adopt a child from the East African country of Eritrea,” states Lara Sanders.
Currently, the couple is managing their work and business. Mekonnen and Sanders are co-running Talent Consult LA, an artist consulting company connecting actors to representation via targeted campaigns and help improve their careers through expert coaching. They also help international artist/business who intend to work in the United States.
Lara is carefully crafting her next move to get her big upcoming feature film off the ground. An adaptation of the award winning feature documentary “Celebration of Flight” and it’s at the casting stage via one of the Hollywood’s biggest casting director.
