From the back cover:
The Court Case You Never Heard of, and Why the Ruling Remains Relevant Today
In City of Los Angeles v. Preferred Communications, the US District Court, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the US Supreme Court all agreed that the City had violated the civil rights of half a million people for ten years and had refused to comply with a 9-0 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States.
Like a made-for-TV movie that’s all too real, this injustice to the Black community includes a corrupt big-city mayor, unethical city and country officials, and a dishonest federal judge who deprived the poorest citizens of Los Angeles the right to have cable television. And when the case was finally settled decades later, the side of right won and the author and his minority business investors were awarded a dollar in damages. A dollar.
Yet the true cost was the loss of the rights of free speech and free press (education and internet) to the impoverished citizens of South Central LA – as generations of injustice were perpetuated and continue to play out on the mean streets of one of America’s largest cities.
A dollar. Injustice. Black America. Media. Corruption at the highest levels of government. This is the case you never heard of – until now. What did you think was going to happen?
