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.
