Everything Is Temporary is putting on the Halloween party of the century!We have all heard of Goatman’s Bridge, we all know the legend, most of us have even been there! But do we know the TRUTH?
In 1939 North Texas’ most successful black goat farmer, Oscar Washburn was lynched by jealous KKK members at Old Alton Bridge.
This story came to be known as the legend of Goat Man and Goat Man’s Bridge. Supposedly they came back to the bridge to find the rope swinging and no man to be found.
But what was the truth? Do we have answers?
What we do know is that 80 years later, we are still experiencing systemic racism, even here in our own town. We can see the patterns and recent events need to be brought to light.
3 years ago in 2018, a young black man by the name of Lermont Stowers-Jones was found dead at the bridge under suspicious circumstances.
We are determined to get answers into what happened. We stand with the family of Lermont in this investigation! Lermont Stowers-Jones AND Oscar Washburn Deserve justice, though it may be too late to get answers about Oscar’s unfortunate demise, these recent events are too close to home to ignore.
ALL PROCEEDS FROM EVERYTHING IS TEMPORARY AND PLAN B GO TOWRDS THE INVESTIGATION OF LERMONT STOWERS-JONES UNTIMELY DEATH.
Its time to step up and say something. Please join us on this Halloween night to bring awareness to this situation and also to support the local bands, venues and musicians that are making this possible!
Wear your best goat man costume and make Oscar proud! His life needs to be celebrated, he was the most successful goat farmer Denton has known.
GOAT MAN IS THE HERO!
