Ava DuVernay Will Be the First Woman of Color to Direct a 100 Million Dollar Film By Britt Hayes From Sceencrush.com By now you’re wellaware that Hollywood has a real problem with female directors, who are typically not given the same chances (read: jobs, budgets, et al.) as their male peers. Ditto for people of color. That makes today’s news particularly heartening, as Ava DuVernay is set to become the first woman of color to helm a $100 million dollar film — a precedent that could (and should) pave the way for studios to hand more big budget blockbusters over to women. Women in Hollywood picked up an interesting tidbit from Deadline’s report on Oprah Winfrey’s casting in A Wrinkle in Time, DuVernay’s upcoming adaptation of the Madeleine L’Engle novel of the same name. The Disney project has a reported budget of over $100 million — hardly surprising given that it’s a major family-friendly feature based on a beloved book. But what is surprising is that DuVernay will now be the third woman to helm a big, live-action studio film

with a budget north of $100 million. She follows in the footsteps of Kathryn Bigelow, who directed the 2002 film K19: The Widowmaker, and Patty Jenkins, the director of the upcoming Wonder Woman solo film (also notable as WB is releasing a femaleoriented superhero film almost two full years before Marvel can do the same). Not only is DuVernay the third woman to direct a film with a budget over $100 million, but she’s the first woman of color to do so, and that’s huge. In recent years we’ve watched as indie filmmakers with typically only one or two credits to their name have been hired to helm major blockbusters: Colin Trevorrow on Jurassic World, Jordan Vogt-Roberts on Kong: Skull Island and (notoriously) Marc Webb on The Amazing Spider-Man and its sequel, and so on. Rarely is the same opportunity afforded to an independent female director, which sadly makes women like Patty Jenkins and Ava DuVernay the exception to the rule. The are plenty of female indie filmmakers who
could make a great blockbuster if given the chance (Jennifer Kent, Leslye Headland, Lynne Ramsay, Ana Lily Amirpour — to name a few), but they’ll never do so unless studios start hiring them and trusting them with larger budgets. We’ve seen female-centric films make some serious bank at the box office with everything from The Hunger Games to the comedies of Paul Feig. Scarlett Johansson is currently the highest-grossing actress of all time, and for good reason. If people enjoy movies about women, then who’s to say the wouldn’t enjoy watching the same movies if they were made by women? Ava DuVernay is an incredibly talented director who deserves this opportunity regardless of color and gender, and the fact that she’s helming a $100 million film for Disney just gives us another reason to celebrate her. Hopefully A Wrinkle in Time will become one big budget project of many to be directed by a woman, and not just another exception to the rule.
“Cumulus Project” at La Cienega and Jefferson To Bring Gentrification to South L.A. with Fast and Furious Speed By Gloria Zuurveen and Jill Stewart When news broke that the first-ever skyscraper had not only been proposed for South L.A., but had already cleared key hurdles at City Hall, a lot of people were surprised. Where were the community hearings? Where was the public debate? How much good would this 320-foot-tall skyscraper do for the mostly black and Latino communities surrounding the proposed “Cumulus project” at La Cienega and Jefferson, on land long occupied by KLOS and KABC radio stations? The answer? The public hearings met the bare minimums required by law. And public debate, over such issues as gentrification? It was extremely quiet and unusually limited. Gentrification was not on the charts shown to the community by Los Angeles city planners. Wiping out the existing community was not discussed. The focus was on less dramatic problems the complex will create, like the massive traffic jams.And as for the good this offers to the community?
CP V Cumulus, the wealthy Bay Area developers proposing this white-collar, upscale, luxury housing/luxury office mega-project, offered residents what would be considered an insult in Westwood: CP V Cumulus agreed, after much resistance, to provide a tiny park, and even some places to shop. But the rest of the project, totaling a staggering 1.9 million square feet, would largely be off-limits to the public and community. It would be filled with $3,000 and $5,000 permonth apartments — more than 1,000 of them — and private offices aimed at high-paid film industry workers in Culver City and beyond. Restaurants will mostly be aimed at people earning $100,000 and up. Clint Simmons, a nearby resident and member of Expo Communities United, summed up the rush placed on residents to bend to the developers' desires: “Do we have to have a skyscraper just to get a grocery store?” he asked. To show the public what this towering compound would
look like, the Los Angeles Times and other newspapers ran a drawing — supplied by the slick San Francisco developer — showing an attractive, five-story building with a public park sitting in front of the building.
Who in South L.A. wouldn't want that? The drawing wasn't a complete and total lie. But it was close. There is one tiny corner of the project that looks like the pretty drawing, complete with a tiny park.
But the rest of those 1.9 million square feet?The Cumulus project is a fortress that closes off the community like a wall. It will draw in thousands of commuters each Please see Cumulus, page 6

EDITORIAL/OPINION Publisher’s Column
Dr. Gloria Zuurveen Founder /Owner/ Publisher/Photographer
Hello Reader, Now more than ever we need to hold all those who desire our votes accountable and not just on election day but before they are elected into their position of power. Because what usually happens is that the candidates get in positions off our votes then they go off and fraternize with everyone except us. With the stakes being so high and it appears that money is buying the elections, the solution for the trump card to be played is not to go from one side to the other but to find out what either candidates will do to makes our cause relevant. Causes like quality of life due to homeownership, economic stability, education for our children and more. We need to be mindful of the power we have yet we don’t harness it to the best of our ability because we appear to be excited that we forget the objective and that is when the bacon comes home we, too, need to eat some of it. So we must make demands now and not later when it is too late. Pray and move forward in preparation to stand.

Rev. Barber’s Speech at the DNC Was Everything By Julianne Malveaux (NNPA News Wire Columnist) The North Carolina NAACP President, Rev. William Barber, tore it up and then threw down in a powerful speech at the Democratic National Convention on July 28th. He called on those assembled to be a “moral defibrillator of our time,” to shock our nation with the power of love and morality. Rev. Barber did not use the word “endorse,” but urged delegates to “embrace” Clinton, and his rousing rhetoric was challenging and inspirational Rev. Barber is a committed and tenacious activist. He founded the “Forward Together Moral Movement”, and has organized “Moral Mondays” in North Carolina. For the past three years, Moral Monday activists have gathered in Raleigh, North Carolina, and used protest and civil disobedience to shine light on the many ways North Carolina has attempted to erode voting rights, and move the state backwards on economic justice issues. “When I hear Hillary’s voice and positions,” Barber said, “I hear and I know she is working to embrace our deepest moral values, and we should embrace her,” he said. “She nor any person can do it alone. The watchword of this democracy is ‘we.’” What are we, the people going to do in the aftermath of the political conventions? Some have said they will stay home, but watching the difference between the gathering of Democrats and that of Republicans should remind us that staying home should not be an option. Stay home, and leave our choice of leadership to others? Stay home and co-sign the hateful comments Mr. Trump made during his convention? Rev. Barber has called the democratic watchword “we,” and Hillary Clinton talked about Democratic inclusiveness, which contrasts with that we observed with Republicans. What are “we” going to do? President Barack Obama set Secretary Clinton up nicely with his Wednesday evening speech, singing her praises and passing the baton. She caught the baton handily, offering a speech that exceeded my every expectation. The speech was full of grit and grace, humor and humility, respect and reaching out to the Bernie folks. Not only could I hear the glass ceiling shattering, but also I hoped that the world could see this woman as Commander-inChief.
Rev. Barber reminds us, though, that we are all part of the “we the people.” He reminds us that we are only committed to democracy when we are actively involved in it. It’s not just about a convention, or a vote. It is about an imperative to transform a system that is flawed. Rev. Barber talked about the “Fight for Fifteen,” the Black Lives Matter movement, and the missing morality in our nation now. Even as he urged us to embrace Hillary, he also urged us to embrace justice. President Obama reminds us that democracy can be frustrating and messy. Rev. Barber reminded us that it can also be moral and loving, if we make the collective decision to rally around key principles and to engage in the process of compromise. We also have to remember that democracy is practiced with more frequency than every four years. Voting is not the most we can do. It is the least we can do. Real democracy exists when people like Rev. William Barber gather people weekly to fight for voting rights, when he speaks up with regularity on the need for political and economic transformation. We exhibit our commitment to democracy when we hold our leaders accountable, when we pressure them to do the right thing, when we remind them of their campaign promises. Those Bernie Sanders supporters who choose to remain engaged in the political process have the responsibility to continue to push their progressive agenda at the national, state, and local levels. Indeed, they honor their movement and their struggle by continuing to feel a burning desire for social and economic justice. If Sanders’ supporters decide to pick up their marbles and go home, because their candidate did not win, it suggests that they are committed to personality, not democracy. Our system is far from perfect, but it’s the system we have. We can change it if we are committed to democracy. Or, we can accept imperfections, if we eschew activism. Thank you, Hillary Clinton for reminding us of your service. Thank you, Rev. Barber for reminding us that Secretary Clinton won’t be able to achieve much, unless we work with her. If you can listen to William Barber and fail to get fired up, you have truly embraced apathy. Barber is a role model, because of his fierce commitment to democracy.

Race To The Bottom By James Clingman “At the Bottom of Politics …Lies Economics”
Booker T. Washington spoke those words in his best effort to show us what is really happening in this country; he tried to convince us to stay focused on the money-side of things, and he admonished us not to immerse ourselves in the political whirlpool and abandon our economic resources. As I look at the upcoming election, and as I have written during the past sixteen years since the Florida election debacle in 2000, all I can sadly say is, “Sorry, Brother Booker; we did not listen to you. Once again, this is the “most important election of our time.” and we are gearing up for the fight. We must register to vote, once again, because our people “died for the right” to do so. We must come out as we have never come out before, you know, like we did in 2000, because 2016 is the “most critical election of our lifetime” – again. Black folks are so hyped about this election, irrespective of not hearing very much about how Black people, specifically, will be positively affected by the outcome. Our leaders tell us – again – that Black folks have the “power” to sway the election in either direction. The question is: If we have that kind of power, why aren’t we using it to get a few concessions for ourselves? Why aren’t we forming an independent political party and leveraging our “power” for a quid pro quo? We may have the power to swing the vote, but it doesn’t seem to matter. I suppose a better way to say it is that Democrats need the power of the Black vote to win, but Republicans only needed one Black vote in 2000 to win: Clarence Thomas’ vote. This political game, at least the way we are playing it, is one that keeps our attention on the symbolism rather than the substance beneath it all. We have had decades to get our act together. Didn’t we see what happened in 2000? Why did our political leaders go back to sleep after they yelled, screamed, and ranted about the Presidential Selection? What were the brothers and sisters doing in Florida after their rights were destroyed by Hurricane Katherine (Harris)? Oh yeah, they sent her to Congress.
What have we been doing to avoid a repeat of what we so vehemently complained about? Most would say: “We have been registering new voters.” Well here is what the other folks have been doing. They have been making money. Private companies and lobbyists have used their time to figure out how to make more money from the political chicanery that takes place in this country. Private companies and lobbyists have been wooing our Secretaries of Defense, Commerce, and State, hawking their wares across this nation, and licking their chops at the thought of raking even more filthy lucre into their coffers. Between the 2000 and 2004 Presidential elections millions of dollars were made on computerized voting machines. Deals were made to open new offices in counties where their systems were purchased and backroom deals such as discounts on software upgrades were consummated. What was the response from Black political leaders, other than hand wringing and catchy voting slogans, regarding the irregularities of that time period? It sure wasn’t an endorsement of Black accountant and auditor, Athan Gibbs,Athan and his TruVote System, which had real built-in protection against vote tampering, and provided a paper receipt for auditing purposes? Before his very suspicious death in Nashville, Tennessee, in March 2004, Athan traipsed across this country trying to get his system endorsed and ultimately utilized in the national election; his system was successfully tested by organizations and other verifiable sources, but other than Cynthia McKinney, Athan3Black political leaders by-and-large did not support a Black man’s invention that would prevent what they constantly complained about: the disenfranchisement of Black voters. Registering and voting were not the biggest problems in 2000; it was votes not being counted, votes being thrown out, and eligible voters being denied the right to vote.Athan2 I had many conversations with Athan and worked to get Ohio to purchase his TruVote by introducing him to then Secretary of State, Ken Blackwell but to no avail. Athan was killed; and one headline read, “Athan Gibbs dead, Diebold lives.” We failed to listen to Booker T., and we failed to listen to Athan Gibbs when he told us how to overcome the voting shenanigans of 2000. Moreover, had we supported TruVote, millions of dollars would have flowed into a Black owned company.

EDUCATION & COMMUNITY NEWS Young, Black Job Seekers Spruce Up Resumes, Aviation Careers Opening By McKenzie Jackson California Black Media email@example.com Recent college grads and job seekers under the age of 31 have only a week to fly into a job applicant pool for a well-paying gig that an official with one Southern California African-American aviation group calls the chance of a lifetime. The Federal Aviation Administration, the national aviation authority of the U.S., is accepting applications from entry-level candidates across the U.S. for air traffic controller positions from August 8 to 15. Quentin D. Miles, Regional President of the National Black Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees Western Pacific, said young, college-educated AfricanAmerican job hopefuls need to take the opportunity to apply for aviation jobs. “There are ample opportunities because we are hitting another retirement wave both in air traffic control
and airway transportation specialist,” he said. “We really want our community, AfricanAmericans, know these jobs are out there.” In a statement, the FAA said applicants for the position of Air Traffic Control Specialist-Trainee need to setup an account on www.USAJobs.gov as soon as possible in order to apply for the highly competitive position. “The agency expects more than 25,000 applications for approximately 1,400 positions during the seven-day job opening,” the statement read. Good jobs are something black college grads across the nation are in short supply of. A 2014 study by the Center for Economic Policy Research revealed 12.4 percent of black college graduates between ages 22 – 27 are unemployed. For all college grads in the same age range the rate was 5.6 percent. The San Diego-based Miles said the FAA is looking to particularly hire African-
Americans in order to increase diversity amongst its workforce. “There are very few of us, but we are working with the agency and our coalition to get the word out,” said Miles of the NBCFAE. “We want to increase the numbers of blacks in this field.” The career aviation man said over 20,000 FAA jobs will be open within the next three to five years across the country. Miles said some of the positions including the air traffic controller role, pay upwards of $70,000 to $100,000 a year. Air traffic controllers guide pilots, their planes and 2.2 million daily passengers from taxi to takeoff, through the air and back safely on the ground again. The FAA statement said air traffic controllers receive a wide range of training in controlling and separating live air traffic within designated airspace at and around an air traffic control tower, radar approach control facility, or air route traffic control center.
“As a new ATCS, you will spend your first several months of employment in an intensive training program at the FAA Academy located in Oklahoma City,” the statement reads. FAA administrator Michael Huerta said in the newsletter the aviation authority “provides the safest, most efficient airspace system in the world and we need exceptional people to support our mission.” Requirements for the job include being a U.S. citizen, being 31 or younger on Aug. 15, passing a medical examination, security investigation and the FAA air traffic pre-employment tests. Candidates must speak English clear enough to be understood over communications equipment and have three years of progressively responsible work experience or a Bachelor’s degree or a combination of postsecondary education and work experience that totals three years. Job inquirers must also be ready to move to an FAA facility based on agency staffing needs. Miles said getting a job with the FAA should be something recent black college graduates seek to do. He said becoming an air traffic controller or air traffic transportation systems specialist ranks high on almost any jobs list. “This is a golden opportunity,” Miles said. “It’s a wonderful opportunity for employment. These jobs because the pay and the benefits are so excellent.” More Stability
In fact, air traffic controller is a career in the indemand fields of accounting, business, computer science and engineering, which have lower unemployment rates. Glassdoor, a jobs and recruiting website, said plenty of top -notch jobs are appearing in the technology, finance and professional services industries. Glassdoor and UC San Diego Extension recently conducted surveys that determined what the hottest jobs are based on career opportunities, base salary and open positions. The jobs listed included accountants, data scientist, human resource manager, marketing manager, nurse practitioner, software developers, market research analysts, and computer network architects. Mary Walshok, associate vice chancellor of public programs and dean of UC San Diego Extension, said in a statement that the careers show both the value of a college degree and also the need for specialized training as technology is continuously reshaping the job market and the economy. "As Marc Andreessen recently opined, 'Software is eating the world,'" Walshok said. "That fact is true in almost every top emerging career whether it be health care or marketing or financial analysis. It's not enough to just know the fundamentals; you have to use technology to provide new insights."
Michael’s Birthday By Israel Matthews
Michael had the best birthday ever with his friends. He went to spend the night at the Hilton Hotel in Irvine and the next day they had fun at Boomers. He and his friends rode on the Go Karts, and rock climbed. After having so much fun it was time to go and eat some tasty ribs for dinner. The next day, it was time for them to head back home but not before they went to get in the pool again. That was a short glimpse if Michael's birthday bash with his two favorite friends.

Americans Prefer To Talk About Politics Rather Than God By Bob Smietana NASHVILLE, Tennessee—Politics trumps God for most Americans when it comes to conversations with their friends. Six in 10 Americans are more comfortable talking about politics than their spiritual beliefs. And most say they aren’t interested in having more spiritual conversations. By contrast, evangelical Christians prefer talking about God over politics by a 2-to-1 margin.Those are among the findings of an online survey of 1,004 Americans about their views on spirituality and politics from Nashville-based LifeWay Research. Scott McConnell, executive director of LifeWay Research, said Americans like to talk about both politics and religion, which are sometimes considered off limits in polite conversation. But they often prefer one to the other. “People tend to discuss the things that matter most to them,” he said. “For evangelicals, that is their faith.” As part of the survey, researchers compared how often Americans talk to others about politics to the number of times they talk about spirituality. Two-thirds of Americans (64 percent) say they had at least three conversations about politics in the last month. Eight percent had no conversations about politics. By contrast, fewer than half (44 percent) had three or more spiritual conversations in the same time frame. Twenty-two percent had no conversations about spirituality. Overall, 6 in 10 Americans (59 percent) say they’re more comfortable discussing their political views than their spiritual beliefs. But there are distinctions among certain groups. Women (51 percent), those who go to church at least once a week (57 percent), and those with evangelical beliefs (63 percent) prefer to talk about their spiritual views. Men (69 percent) and those who don’t have evangelical beliefs (65 percent) prefer to talk about politics. Most Americans also say they have about as many conversations about spirituality as they can handle. About half (51 percent) say they have “just the right amount” of discussions on spiritual beliefs. A quarter (23 percent) want fewer spiritual discussions. Only 1 in 5 wants more. Six percent aren’t sure. Hispanics (38
percent), those 18 to 35 (35 percent), and those who live in the West ---(30 percent) are more likely to say they have spiritual conversations “more often than I would like.” Those with evangelical beliefs (32 percent), those 55 and over (26 percent), and those in the South (24 percent) are more likely to say they have such conversations “less often than I would like.” Churchgoers are split. Three in 10 (29 percent) of those who attend at least once a week say they want fewer spiritual conversations. One in 4 (26 percent) wants more spiritual conversations. Still, many Americans are open to hearing what other people think about faith. About half (52 percent) believe they have as much to find out as they do to share during a spiritual conversation. A quarter (26 percent) say they have more to find out. A similar number (22 percent) think they have more to share. Evangelicals are more likely to believe they have more to share (32 percent) in a spiritual conversation. They’re less likely to say they have more to find out (17 percent). Frequent churchgoers also believe they have more to share (33 percent). Those findings don’t surprise McConnell. Sharing one’s faith in order to convert others is a core evangelical conviction. Still, he said, those with evangelical beliefs may need to listen more during a spiritual conversation. “If you don’t care what your neighbors believe, chances are they won’t listen to what you have to say,” he said. Philip Nation agrees. Nation helps manage Bible Studies for Life, which sponsored the survey. Evangelicals who want to share their faith may need to listen first, he said. “The culture wants dialogue about spiritual beliefs,” said Nation, director of content development for LifeWay Christian Resources. “Evangelicals too often only want to lecture our neighbors. We need to learn the needs and worldview of our neighbors so we can effectively discuss the gospel.” Among other findings: Americans are split over sharing spiritual beliefs on social media. While 38 percent are comfortable or very comfortable doing so, a similar number (36 percent) are either not comfortable or don’t use social media. Few Americans (17 percent) say they are most comfortable sharing their views on social media. Three-quarters would rather discuss their beliefs one-on-one (40 percent) or in a small group (33 percent). Six percent would prefer not to share their views. Americans seem lukewarm about starting a spiritual conversation. Three in 10 say starting a conversation is interesting (30 percent), easy (29 percent) or natural (29 percent). Few say starting a conversa-
tion is scary (9 percent), boring (5 percent) or embarrassing (4 percent). Most churchgoers (72 percent) say they have the right amount of training to help them share their faith. About half of churchgoers (49 percent) say their church treats sharing the gospel as extremely urgent (24 percent) or urgent (25 percent). Seven in 10 Americans say
they are “not concerned at all” if their neighbors hold beliefs different from their own. Six in 10 (61 percent) say they aren’t concerned if their family has different beliefs. Overall, McConnell believes Americans are open to talking about faith. Few seem turned off by spiritual conversations, he said, espe-
cially if those conversations are in person and are respectful. “If your friends are tired of arguing about politics on Facebook, trying asking them about God,” he said. Bob Smietana is senior writer for Facts & Trends magazine.

“Cumulus Project” To Bring Gentrification to South L.A.
PACE NEWS Today without delay! Call: (323) 244-7286
(Continued from page 1) day, but not from South L.A. Its well-off residents will have ample and secure parking for their sports cars, and they'll only be 30 minutes from their jobs in Santa Monica and Playa Vista. The Cumulus project will bring gentrification to South L.A. so fast and furious that the existing neighborhood will be threatened, and perhaps even stamped out. But what do you expect of Bay Area developers who had the nerve to claim, in official documents filed at City Hall, that they were providing “open space” throughout the compound? It turns out they were counting as “open space” the balconies of the wealthy tenants they intend to rent to. This compound for the rich is not supposed to be built on the KLOS/KABC land. The land is zoned for what the community actually needs: buildings that house good working-class and middle-class jobs. But that type of land-use zoning was inconvenient for City Hall elected leaders. The Cumulus project is based on the “latte economy”: there will be latte drinkers and there will be latte servers. And little between. Politicians raise campaign cash from developers by agreeing to ignore existing landuse rules in L.A. that serve the community needs. In 2014 and 2015, Carmel Partners — CP V Cumulus — paid $59,356 to wellconnected lobbyists to influence L.A. officials, and gave amounts totalling $4,900 to a council member's “officeholder account” and campaign chests of council members who were key to backing the project. Then the City Council did what Cumulus wanted: It tossed out the existing land-use zoning. The City Council “spot zoned” the land, meaning they
changing it just for the developer. In response to this illegal move by the City Council, the Crenshaw Subway Coalition and Friends of the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative recently sued the city, and the Los Angeles City Council, for their illegal actions. As one opponent of the Cumulus project said, “The skyscraper looks like a giant, giving the finger.” The Coalition to Preserve LA, which is placing the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative on the ballot next March, has found that once City Hall allows one tall tower or luxury megadevelopment on land where the zoning did not allow it, they then claim a “precedent” and allow even more luxury development. And soon, those who lived there can't afford their own neighborhoods. Damien Goodmon, Executive Director of the Crenshaw Subway Coalition, said, “The Cumulus project is the poster child for wildly out-of-scale development that is clearly not for existing residents and feeds concerns like gentrification. We believe in development without displacement and responsible community planning. This is a gross violation of both of those principles. Furthermore, the Cumulus project sends a horrible message to developers that ‘Anything goes,’ which threatens the right of existing residents to the neighborhoods we have built and want to see improved for us.” Some nearby homes will be placed in hours of shadow caused by the massive skyscraper. And while city officials insist that the upscale residents and workers will take the Expo Line nearby, Metro's own numbers show that its transit customers are not upscale people. Gridlock now jams La Cienega, Jefferson, Washington and Venice boulevards in the immediate area around KLOS and
KABC, and the gigantic project will make it far worse. La Cienega is a shortcut to LAX, already jammed with east-west and northsouth commuters much of the day. Residents in and around the Baldwin Hills and West Adams areas are not antidevelopment. Quite the opposite. In fact, local residents had just completed 8 long years of work on the West Adams Community Plan — which includes the KLOS/ KABC land in question — and they were open to development. After all, black and Latino neighborhoods south of the 10 Freeway have been redlined and ignored by investors for years. They wanted growth, shops and stores. But in a true insult, after residents within the West Adams Community Plan area agreed to allow multi-story buildings, even as high as 7 or 8 stories, on La Cienega, the City Council ignored their 8 years of work and approved the 30-story skyscraper. Not 7 stories, 30 stories. The City Council even approved the project without any local hire requirements. Beverly Grossman Palmer, the attorney representing Crenshaw Subway Coalition and Friends of the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative, said, “The City ignored the limitations included in the newly proposed West Adams Community Plan and permitted construction of a 320-foot tower that far exceeds the permissible height on all neighboring properties. This is a perfect example of ‘spot zoning’ to benefit a particular developer, exactly the practice that the City Charter prohibits.” Or put another way, nobody was asking for skyscrapers just to get a grocery store. (Jill Stewart is campaign director for the Coalition to Preserve LA, which is sponsoring the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative heading for the March 2017 ballot.)

NATIONAL/STATE & REGIONAL NEWS New U.S. Mortgage Rules Aim To Stop Wrongful Foreclosures The U.S. agency charged with protecting consumers' finances approved rules on Thursday that will help prevent wrongful home foreclosures, as the regulator continues to press on with reforming the country's massive lending market. The rules by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), created in the aftermath of the U.S. housing bust that began in 2006, build on current regulations requiring a mortgage servicer to grant certain foreclosure protections to a struggling borrower once over the life of the loan. Now, servicers, the conduits for mortgage payments, must provide those protections more than once, offering them to borrowers who make current payments after they have worked out an agreement to avoid foreclosure. "This change will be particularly helpful for borrowers who obtain a permanent loan modification and later suffer an unrelated hardship – such as the loss of a job or the death of a family member – that could otherwise cause them to face foreclosure," the CFPB said in an outline of the new rules. The rules also expand consumer protections to surviving family members and require servicers to give borrowers in bankruptcy information about possible interventions. They bolster requirements related to loss mitigation, a foreclosure alternative that allows people to stay in their homes and pay some
money to lenders, as well. Servicers will have to promptly notify borrowers when loss mitigation applications are complete, and will not be able to "dual track," where they take legal steps toward foreclosure at the same time they evaluate the applications. "The Consumer Bureau is committed to ensuring that homeowners and struggling borrowers are treated fairly by mortgage servicers and that no one is wrongly foreclosed upon,” CFPB Director Richard Cordray said in a statement. In a June report, the CFPB showed some servicers are giving homeowners wrong or outdated information, or no information at all. When mortgage defaults spiked during the 200709 financial crisis, servicers came under intense scrutiny for missing paperwork, incomplete documentation, and "robosigning," where employees signed off on foreclosures without review. A crisis-era Treasury program that allows struggling borrowers to reduce their monthly payments and prevent foreclosure will expire in January. On Tuesday, the CFPB said it was looking into crafting new debt relief programs and released the principles guiding its work, which emphasized giving consumers easy access to information about loss mitigation and the decisions servicers make on their loans and creating repayment plans and loan modifications that are affordable.

White Alabama Pastor Fired for Inviting Black Children to Attend His Church Butler, AL — Nathan Greer, a former pastor at Mt. Sterling Baptist Church in Butler, Alabama, says he was fired for inviting Black children to attend the church’s Vacation Bible School. He says that 31 members of the church leadership unanimously voted him out after he refused to stop when they initially warned him. He told reporters, “There was pushback about where the types of children we were bringing in, and I was asked to not invite black children to VBS.” After being told this repeatedly by the other pastors, Greer decided to give a Sunday sermon about racism. Soon after, he says he was fired. He comments, “I wanted the church to know that this is not consistent with the gospel. This is not consistent with God’s word that we honor and give dignity to all people. That’s what the Bible teaches us, and all people are worthy and in need of the gospel, and racism denies that to a certain amount
of people.” Freddie Moore, however, a deacon at the same church, says otherwise. He told reporters that black people are very welcome to join the congregation, and that the real reason why Greer was voted out was because he had not been getting along well with other church members. But Greer insists that the list of reasons he was given for his firing “were all related to negative things happening if black people started coming.” He continues, “What they really mean is that someone can wander in off the street and they won’t stop them, but they specifically asked me, explicitly, not to invite black people. I tried to communicate with them that that’s not consistent with Christianity.”
Seattle Woman Creates Web Site Encouraging White People to Pay Reparations to People of Color Natasha Marin, a poet and conceptual artist from Seattle, Washington, has recently launched an online initiative that encourages white people to ask themselves: What can I do to help fix racial injustice? Her web site, www.Reparations.me, is essentially a public forum where white people can offer their belongings or services, and people of color can request help for a specific need. But Natasha, who is originally from Trinidad, told the Washington Post, “The site isn’t about atoning for slavery. It’s about reparations for things that happened earlier today, for yesterday, for last Thursday. This is for the present tense.” The site, which began as a social media experiment on Facebook, has garnered a lot of national attention. Some, of course, are criticizing the idea, but others are embracing it. Natasha says she has received both
racist and negative responses, and has even received death threats. But this has not deterred her. According to her web site: “For every malevolent, racist, post submitted via this website, a dollar will be donated to Reparations.me for folks who have specifically requested financial support. The time you invest in spewing hate could be spent supporting someone who needs you in your community. But maybe you have nothing of
value to offer your community except a vile contempt for creativity, compassion, and human connection?” She says she plans to continue allowing people to pay and solicit reparations in what she calls “an organic manner without the regulation of government or committee.” She explains, “[Reparations] is a word that means repair. And I feel like many people feel broken.” Meanwhile, the site has stirred up and renewed the controversial ongoing debate about “white privilege” and “white guilt”. It has also sparked a heated national debate about whether or not descendants of slaves deserve reparations.

Call To Reopen Unsolved Murder of Louisville Civil Rights Pioneer By Steve Bittenbender LOUISVILLE — Louisville police said on Thursday they were reviewing a request to reopen the 51-year-old unsolved murder of the city's first female prosecutor, a civil rights pioneer who once represented boxer Muhammad Ali. The body of Alberta Jones, who was beaten unconscious, was pulled from the Ohio River on Aug. 5, 1965. No charges were filed in the case, but Lee Remington Williams, a professor at Bellarmine University in Louisville, sent a seven-page letter this week to the city's police chief asking him to reopen the investigation of the 34-year-old's death. Alicia Smiley, a police spokeswoman, said Chief Steve Conrad would review the request and give it "full consideration." Jones was the first African-American woman to pass the Kentucky bar exam, and represented Ali, then known as Cassius Clay, in securing the eventual boxing champ's first professional contract. The Louisville CourierJournal reported that she helped integrate the University of Louisville. Eight years ago, the Federal Bureau of Investigation matched a fingerprint found inside Jones's car to a man who was 17 at the time of the murder. ThenCommonwealth’s Attorney Dave Stengel concluded two years later

Williams, a lawyer who teaches pre-law at Bellarmine, initially wanted to write a book about the case, but now is focused on helping to get the case reopened, noting that the lead detective and the thenteenager are still alive. Jefferson County Attorney Mike O'Connell said on Thursday that his office has a personal interest in the case, citing the presence of a plaque commemorating
the young attorney's service to the community. Jones's niece also has been a long-time staff member, he said. "She was so far ahead of her time," said O'Connell, who added that it was up to the police to decide whether or not to reopen the investigation. Jones was not a county attorney at the time, but the position she held was absorbed into the county attorney's office several years ago, according to the county attorney's office.

Central Avenue Jazz Festival-Keep That Same Old Feeling By Ricky Richardson LOS ANGELES— Councilmember Curren D. Price, Jr. and The New 9th in conjunction with Coalition For Responsible Community Development in partnership with Concerned Citizens of South Central, Central Ave. BID and SHEROES presented the 21st Annual Central Avenue Jazz Festival, Saturday, July 30, and Sunday, July 31, 2016. This amazing family friendly festival was held along Central Avenue between Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and Vernon Avenue. For two decades and counting, the Central Avenue Jazz Festival has helped to celebrate the musical history and culture of South Los Angeles, the west coast birthplace of Jazz music, America’s #1 art form. A huge crowd strolled up and down Central Avenue enjoying all that the festival had to offer. Three stages provided non-stop top notch live musical performances. My day begin at Stage 2 to hear the Jimmy McConnell Super Big Band with special guest Sylvia Boyd. The crowd and I were digging their explosive Big Band arrangements of jazz standards and classic covers of pop tunes. Michael Session Sextet continued in a straight-ahead mode. They opened their crowd pleasing set with “Milestones” and continued with “Donde Esta Axe” by Nate Morgan, which translate to Where is your ax (musical instrument). Vocalist, flautist and harp player Maia joined the band to sing “Pretty Eyes” by Horace Silver and additional tunes. Saxophonist Aaron Shaw was tearing it up on the Main Stage with a group of young jazz lions. Katia Moraes & Brazilian Hearts took the crowd and me on a musical journey into the marvelous sounds from various regions throughout Brazil. Saxophonist Christopher Astoquillca was quite busy this day performing at multiple Peruvian Independence Day Celebrations. Christopher was making a return engagement leading his own band. He brought in a group of young cats, Matthew Sampsontrumpet, Drew Dennet-bass, Adam Hurst-keyboards and Makela Session on drums and then they got into something on the tunes “Blue Bossa,” “Cherokee,” “Youngest Scholar” an original composition, followed by “Impressions” by John Coltrane while also honoring the legacy of Rahsaan Roland Kirk by playing two saxophones at the same time. They moved on with “Stomping at the Savoy,” and concluded their set with “A Night in Tunisia.” Another highlight of day one featured new school crooner T. C. Carson, yes, that’s right, Kyle Barker. T. C. Carson is a singer and stage and voice and television actor best known for portraying Kyle Barker on the FOX sitcom Living Single featuring Queen Latifah, Erica Alexander, Kim Fields and John Henton. You probably recognized his distinct baritone voice

from Star Wars: The Clone Wars as voice double for Samuel L. Jackson. T. C. Carson was superbly aided by Julius Speedkeys, Dale Adkins-bass and Larry Newson-drums. They thoroughly entertained the crowd with some jazz standards and classic R&B soul tunes on “My Favorite Thing,” “ I Saw the Midnight Sun,” “Taste” (Of Your Love), “I Want to Be Your Lover” in a tribute to Prince, “Inner City Blues” a timely tune, as it relates to the current Presidential elections and issue facing urban communities throughout America. My day ended with a partial set from the Banda Brothers on Stage 2 and a few songs from The Los Angeles Jazz Orchestra Unlimited a group of jazz heavy hitters with Kenny Burrell-Artistic Director, Dr. Bobby Rodriguez and Charley Harrison-Conductors. Sunday, Day 2 of the festival presented picante sets of Latin Jazz/Salsa supplied by the Bravo High School Latin Jazz Band directed by Gil Flores. This group of talented youngsters sounded tight and

like professional musicians, that defy their age. Bobby Matos Latin Jazz Ensemble continued with a high octane set of original and other Latin jazz standards. Legendary jazz Singer Ernie Andrews, aka “Mr. Central Avenue is an entertainer’s entertainer. He held court on Sunday on the Main Stage. Every tune was followed by thunderous applause, as jazz aficionados are always enthralled during a solid performance by this legend of the early days of Central Avenue. Justo Almario AfroColombian Jazz Ensemble capped off a memorable and joyous celebration with sounds/ rhythms representing the African diaspora. People took a break a from the music to browse the popular Youth Pavilion, Health & Wellness Pavilion, Arts Pavilion and the Business Development & Employment Resources Pavilion. A good time was had by all in attendance, and they walked away with some swag, and a ton of helpful information.
