One Hour "Journey" Film at Flagler Auditorium, 5/31, Tuesday, Doors Open at 6 PM
By City Commission vote of 4-1, Mayor Nancy Shaver dissenting, politically favored Mummy Cat Productions was given a retroactive license, without fee, to make money from the City's own understated "Journey -- 450 Years of African-American History" film by television syndication. "The City came to us," the vendor admits. This was a Dana Ste. Claire/Joe Boles scheme for their pals at Mummy Cat Productions -- a sweetheart contract.
See the one hour version of the City-originated "Journey" film, for which no royalty was paid by cronies at Mummy Cat, on May 31, 2016 at Lawrence Lewis Auditorium, Flagler College, Malaga Street, on May 31, 2016.
Doors open at 6 PM.
It's our money.
Did the producers profiteer from their government contract, poorly drafted by City Attorney RONALD WAYNE BROWN to benefit cronies of ex-Mayor JOSEPH LESTER BOLES, JR.? Does the film understate and sugarcoat our City's racist past?
