At 2 pm on Saturday, February 15th, Oxford Film Festival and Theater Oxford are presenting a reading of the screenplay version of Kat and Margaret King’s “Our Josephine “ in the auditorium of the Oxford/Lafayette Library. Some of Oxford’s best talent will be featured. Step back in time to 1957 in Vicksburg, Mississippi—into a separate-but-equal society as the 9-year-old King Twins meet their first African American friend, 16-year-old Josephine. The twins try to draw Josephine into their antics but she knows better. Enjoy their journey into the past, meeting their grandmother’s zany neighbors, the spirited Baptist preacher and others who make an impression on the twins—none more than Josephine who taught them the meaning of respect, regardless of skin color, and what real friendship means!
