OXFORD, OH (FOX19) - After getting complaints an Oxford music event lacks diversity, organizers are publicly apologizing.
The Uptown Summer Concert Series is a popular event in Oxford that takes place on Thursday nights. Musicians play live at the Uptown Park, weather permitting.
The commenters made it clear they are not happy with Enjoy Oxford's 2018 summer concert series schedule, writing things like: "The lack of diversity is disturbing and uninviting."
"We do a lot of programs with different groups, like an international back to school welcome for international students, but that's beside the point. This time, with this program, we missed the mark," Greene said.
A few hours later, the leaders of Enjoy Oxford took to social media to say sorry.
The organizers promised to work harder now to do better in the future, especially when they once again start the months-long concert selection process.
"We'll learn from this," Greene said.
FOX19 NOW reached out to many of the people who made the negative reviews on Facebook regarding a lack of diversity. No one was willing to speak on camera regarding the issue, but comments indicate some people are pleased with how the organization handled the situation and hope organizers will follow through.
