Out In The Park: A Softball Game & Family Picnic at Avent Park

Join this community gathering for a softball game, cookout, and other kids activities as we join together for a send off to the weekend. This event is a great opportunity to fellowship with other community members and enjoy the outdoors in one of Oxford’s beautiful public parks.

The Bluff City Sports Association, Memphis’s Gay Sports League, will be sending down the Cotton Row Uniques to play a softball double-header against Oxford’s own Isom J-Hawks! Come cheer on the J-Hawks and watch some softball.

Burgers, hot dogs, drinks, and watermelon will be provided free of charge. Other refreshments from area vendors will be available for purchase.

Arts teacher Todd Shaffer will be leading an arts camp for kids. Shaffer was a ten-year veteran director of the Modern Primitive Art Gallery in Atlanta, GA, one of the nation’s leading galleries for outsider art in the south. Todd was responsible for gallery operations as well as corporate sales to the House of Blues Collection, the largest public art collection. He recently took a position as the Arts in Education specialist with Young Audiences of Louisiana. Bring the kids down to the park to make signs, masks, and other crafts!

Stonewall Uprising: THE YEAR THAT CHANGED AMERICA

Sponsored by Oxford Film Festival, OutOxford, and Sarah Isom Center for Women & Gender Studies.

About the film:

When police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City on June 28, 1969, the street erupted into violent protests that lasted for the next six days. The Stonewall riots, as they came to be known, marked a major turning point in the modern gay civil rights movement in the United States and around the world.
A discussion will be held after the film.
