Many money. Combined the has reached more than five hundred, million dollars to date and TV as they would suggest is increasingly inking deals beyond podcasting, TV and even recently striking deal. So don't welcome to the. Past. Thank you for having me. Let Veer. And Eighty joining us from Atlanta today as you've been hung down. Yes I am I've been here for. How long has it been now? Feels like this. Browse data. Yeah. Monday or Saturday I can't tell but yeah. I mean Atlanta from California originally but. Moved here to Atlanta. After after I should go into college and then I love the city. Yes I was going to ask you she's a what brought you to Atlanta. I know your your background was in music permission an are. Yeah. Yes. So I'm from the Bay Area San Jose California my mom actually moved to Atlanta when I was in high school So I went to thousand state after graduating high school for about a year and a half, and then at certain point came to visit my mom and a friend of mine his older brother was going to Clark Atlanta University a historically black college. I went to the campus. Saw Beautiful Campus I saw beautiful women and I said I have to go here one day. So I transferred transferring from Saudi state to Clark Atlanta and the you know had half my family was already here so. Ended up staying and just building. Building out my business here, and it'll be started started in music industry in Atlanta. And in that time, he builds up a pretty enviable client list to have to say like Jay z outcast, can you take back to that time? What what can have brought e to setting? Is It D. Day and statements and some of the this the standout moments from that time. Yeah I mean so many it's been twenty years It all happened very much like podcasting kind of by accident I've always been into our entrepreneur started my first company when I was about eighteen years old shirt COMP design company Printing Company which I learned from Tom, this profit organization that I was working with. So I was always been business-minded my my dad his own construction company or has own construction company. So I've always seen him write his own business as well and. When I got to Atlanta. We just for in this music scene that was very Coming up like yet outcasts yet goodie mob TLC, usher and we kind of just. Went to this party and met a few people start networking a few business cards and decided, hey, we should just. Hang out with these people and start to promote and pass out flyers in. Other the company actually started because we were losing money I was the only one with a car. So it was causing gas money to go from point eight point be so I said, hey guys, we've got a pool our money together to share in these losses in eventually someone said, hey, how much you guys charge to put up those posters and we got to come up with a number that's count started the business but it evolved from there obviously from running a promotions company out of the Dorm Room Clark Atlanta to. You know taking artists like masterpiece in Yeah Jay Z. His. In promoting concerts in the going on the road with artists like outkast and Goodie mob and that evolved into management. An are in the and the names started getting bigger and bigger and not just the names bigger. But my relationship with the artists at first, you're a little bit. Distanced from the creative process, you're only on the promotions and marketing side. That I became more involved in the creation of albums, the management of talent stuff like that. So it was it's been great I mean I've traveled the world three times artists toured you know Africa with Chris Brown in the US with With usher festivals all over the world. So I there's so many standout said it's fun to talk about it because I forget a lot of them but the it's like having two different two different careers in two different lives. Almost you know I'm really interested in how you and your kind of tie founder at tend to fit came to mate. So you okay founder is pain Lindsey, and in a prior life he was in this hybrid even describe them. But like rap rock bands cooled rights here the tree. So interested in night walk forces combined that the you T to mate and and start working together. Is another interesting story so we I I didn't know who pain was, but I knew who the band was right his right side of the tree and he. Yeah the music was so and it's all. It's all about like how you introduced to something. It really has a big impact of what you initially feel about it. So I was managing an artist's name. Lloyd, who was on what he was on Atlantic or universal at the time. But big RB artists that Atlanta and he had producer that pain in his the rest of his band and they ended up collaborating in doing a song. So pain had a song with a very popular Atlanta artist. So new the band from from that perspective and like the music and then. Probably three years later or more actually probably the five years later I got an. Email from a guy named pain Lindsay I'm I've moved on in my career and I'm managing a new artist on on the verge of breaking through and I get an email from pain saying, Hey, I'm money's pain Lindsey A mutated director and I love the shoot a video for your artist and. I didn't know who he didn't recognize the name but a friend of mine who having dinner with me at the time I read the email and he said Oh that's pain from rice out of the tree I said okay. Well, maybe I'll give this guy a shot because before I wasn't sure if you we already have people to do our videos, but because of that connection already knew who he was like. Okay that's that's cool. There's. You know there's tried out. So we shot one video for a couple thousand dollars turn out to be great. He was able to I wasn't quite sure like how good he would be. So I kind of was forcing my creative ideas on him but any and you made them come out great and then we did that times and then I said man, this guy's good I should probably just let him run with the creative ideas and have him bring the video back with his full vision and when he did that the biggest got even better. So I just knew like we have a really good working relationship being able to hear each other right and being able to collaborate creatively and in respecting each other from creative and business standpoint. So. It was like the foundation of US later becoming business partners

Hollywood's Black List
"Every year, fifty thousand movie scripts Tele plays other pieces of writer Lee stuff get registered with the Writers Guild of America fifty thousand most of which sucks, but a handful of which will become the movies that change our lives today on the show how a math! Loving movie nerd used a spreadsheet and an anonymous hotmail address to solve one of Hollywood's most fundamental problems, picking winners from a sea of garbage, and he may just have reinvented the power structure of Hollywood along the way.

A. dot com slash NPR. We're only months away from election day and every week or even every few hours. There's a new twist that could affect who will win the White House to keep up with the latest tune into the NPR. Politics podcast every to find out what happened and what it means for the election. It's two thousand and five Franklin Leonard a junior executive at Leonardo. DiCaprio's production company which sounds glamorous, but arguably he is a glorified script reader. WHO's boss's boss? Is Leonardo DiCaprio. Franklin's job is to help that boss. Find The next great movie for Leo, which means he is constantly reading movie scripts. Every junior executive lives in constant fear of the trade story that breaks about some exciting new script that they didn't know about that. Their bosses like. Like why didn't you know about this? Franklin is supposed to know about everything which is tough because there's this famous old saying in Hollywood. Nobody knows anything as in. It's really hard to know what movies are going to work. So if you do find something any piece of information that can help you gauge. What might work that information? Franklin is learning. That is Hollywood gold one of the things that drilled into your head. Is that information? Information is the most valuable thing. Yeah, and that information is to be protected and kept in house and exploitation of that information is how we in power and leverage like what little information you can manage, and then if it's kind of good, put up a wall as quickly as possible. That's exactly right. Movie scripts are a kind of information like the fundamental piece of information for a movie, and so Franklin's job is go out into the world. World and find undiscovered scripts before anybody else finding those scripts, though amongst the thousands and thousands being written every year it's a bit like walking into like the largest bookstore in the world, and every book has the exact same color. There's no cover art. There's no like publishers weekly. There's no reviews available to you, but your job is to walk into that sort of hyper anonymous bookstore and come out with the best books available That seems impossible. And Franklin says you can see how a problem emerges quickly in Hollywood people deal with this overwhelming amount of information by assuming they should reach for the same shelves of that anonymous bookstores they always do. They assume they should make the same kinds of movies written by the same kinds of people starring the same kinds of people. Yes, we are generally talking about white men people you soon because this has been the case for you thus far that are white writer who went to Dartmouth is better than a black writer who went to? To Clark Atlanta or Spelman, the conventional wisdom that you assume as wisdom is more often than not convention, and that is especially true in Hollywood where the convention has been created by people who are in no way, shape or form representative of the audience and consumer that they are trying to sell to Franklin. decided it was going to be part of his job. Try and find scripts outside of the conventions, well of course, also keeping an eye open for the next conventional blockbuster, which yeah was gonNA mean lots more reading the normal. Look. I've always been bit of a grind. My Competitive Advantage was my capacity to work, and so every weekend I would take home a banker's box full of scripts, but literally twenty five thirty screenplays, and try to read them all every Saturday afternoon. There is Franklin sitting on his couch. It is black sweatpants flipping through page after page after page hoping he's about to read a life changing story imagine if Christmas was every Saturday, but every Saturday. You ran downstairs and opened the box that you're most excited about, and it was socks. Because there is the possibility of getting everything that you ever wanted yeah. But there is the probability that it's. Socks most Saturdays and Sundays go like this Franklin tears into his Christmas scripts seven hours later. Frankland sitting in a pile of socks and the worst thing is when he goes into the office on Monday. His boss says you read anything good. And Franklin has to say no. It was as if he didn't do any work that weekend. Because most scripts are so bad, the Franklin would be in trouble for recommending them, and even if he is lucky enough to find a scripted, he loves he's really got to think about whether. Whether it is the right kind of thing for Leo's company like there was a script going around that year about a guy dealing with his interpersonal trauma by buying and dating a sex doll. It's easy to imagine reading that in saying Oh this is a really well observed human story, but imagine going into your boss's office and saying you should read this and when they ask you what it's about saying. This is what it's about Leonardo DiCaprio. I think you should play this role where you date of a doll like that's. That's a tough sell for the most confident among us. Franklin's breaking point came late one night. Do you remember his? He was in the office. It was dark outside, and he was supposed to go on vacation, and he just kept thinking about how he was inevitably going to end up drowning in bad scripts on vacation, and all of that work would generate nothing of actual value for his job and I remember, looking up and thinking. I. Don't know that this is sustainable and I need to come up with a solution. How is there not a better system for finding good screenplays? If you do the Friends of friends method, you end up with the Friends of friends scripts, and if you try this brute force thing, you're going to ruin your weekends, Andrew Vacation, plus you would need fifty more Franklin's to see all of the script anyway. And that's when it dawns on Franklin. There are more than fifty Franklin's in Hollywood got on. My desktop fired up my calendar and went through and looked at every single person who had a job similar to mine. Who I had had breakfast lunch, dinner or drinks with. If you had eavesdropped on those breakfasts and drinks, Franklin says you would have heard the junior executives ask each other this same question. Have you read anything good lately? Yes, these junior. Our competitors and yes, information is power and companies would probably not be jazzed about them sharing that information, but you know these are low level producers. They're doing each other favors, and it's all off the record anyway. Who is going to know about this and so Franklin figures? Let's see if anyone's read anything good lately. He opens up an email and he BBC's about seventy. Five of his fellow junior exacts, and so know hey. Similar of your ten favorite scripts in exchange I will send you the combined. Responses back. Did you say who you were like? I am a I am a mysterious junior executive. Say anything else, I do not believe that I did. I created an anonymous hotmail address. I believe it was blacklist. Two thousand five at Hotmail DOT com, he called it the blacklist partly to honor the blacklisted writers during the McCarthy era, and partly because he always hated the idea that the word black gets used to mean bad, so this blacklist was going to mean great screenplays. People would respond, but surprisingly responses started coming back. Maybe these other junior executives felt as stuck as Franklin. Maybe it was just this information bargain was was a good deal. I sure transcripts I get a whole list back there around ninety responses and every time somebody mentioned the same script Franklin treated that like a vote for that script, and he starts logging all of this into spreadsheet. Twenty five people voted for things. We lost in the fire by Allan Loeb Twenty. Four people mentioned Juno by cody. Fifteen votes Larson the real girl by Nancy Oliver Fourteen votes, Lars and the real girl that is the script about the guy and the sex. If, you were a junior executive. Thinking this is good, but is this good? I'm not important enough to risk bringing this to my boss. The blacklist was a way of saying you were right. It was good and here is a number. Instead of just your instincts fourteen votes, only living boy in New, York, by Allan, Loeb Charlie Wilson's war by earned Sorkin, Fan Burke and by the way a big deal in two thousand five. This wasn't just about finding undiscovered writers. It was any script that was great and not made. In a script called peacock by riders named Michael Lender and Ryan Roy the top ten of the very first blacklist thubten of the very first blacklist. Point the blacklist was just a spreadsheet that only Franklin could see, and he's about to send it back to all those other junior executives who contributed and he looks at it for a moment all of this normally off the record insider Hollywood Intel now written in a single place. He takes a deep breath. And he hit send. And then he packs up and heads off for vacation in Mexico and about a weekend vacation I went to the hotel of business center to check my email on like the public computer. And this lists have been forwarded back to me several dozen times. and everyone's like Oh my word of this team. Come from a lot of descriptions of sister. Good. Where where did this come from? What's your? What's your thought? It was terrifying. My thought is is that my career in Hollywood has a clock on it and the doomsday clock has just sped up. This anonymous list of the best unmade screenplays was blowing up. It had gone way beyond the small circle. It was initially sent to it even ended up covered the industry press, and so Franklin kept his down. He stayed anonymous and one day. He gets this call from an agent. Saying that his client has written this amazing script. It's perfect for Leo. It's like the usual call, except then the agent says hey. Don't tell anybody, but I have it on good authority that this ripped is going to be the number one script on next year's blacklist. I immediately thought to myself. That's interesting because I made the blacklist and I'm not making another one because I. DON'T WANNA get run out of town on rails. But I'm fascinated that you think that the speculative notion of your client scripting on the list is a sales tool for you. That must mean that this list that I created has

light in love to the family into the university family four zero four eight nine two two seven zero three will cram for a different outcome but you know at the end of the day L. this is happening and this is what we have to the deal would have to face let's go on to our conversation let's go to Herman and Atlanta her in Forest Park Herman how are you or a daring to bar that was heavy yeah yeah yeah unfortunate unfortunate but you know we we have to keep pressing own brother was on your mind today yes and they come in you know I'm old time and then the civil rights movement you know the fifties and the sixties and wouldn't they're all mine mine I wanted how did the Anglos and a Jewish people that March with the us and helped us during the civil rights movement how did they feel when they community their own community shine them from happening now all I see that rain playing manifesting in I'm a blank was so much hatred you know you know I'm not a trump supporter right going to see KROQ but they manifest so much hatred argues from which the you know you can disagree but with such venom and hatred you know it does work now I understand what the people that much with us during the civil rights movement the white you know Jewish and Anglos they do have this went through and yes that is all we can discuss but not be so much better thank you very much and I think that we know we've politics because we have such a a on off the docks the president nobody's ever seen anything quite like it I don't see people going over there going to blow holes I think we can take up a lot politic verse here's somebody of weight to Sears with me on that thank god throws in either one of the parties to deliver for us I think in the more hope we put in politics the more disappointed we gonna be that said the local and national level right and so part of what you're saying is a the political neophyte who you know just think that the president's gonna the presidency is gonna deliver something for us yeah we talk about is the lowest unemployment in the for black people what people don't realize is in the unemployment numbers they do not even calculate dole's who are not even looking for a job you cannot calculate it within unemployment numbers those who have a misdemeanor felony on their records who not gonna be high right of those who have so much a rear edge and child support who have said look I work eighty hours in my check is seventy five dollars and so is better for me to hustle out here in the streets then go on the job because I'm not willing to work eighty hours and have it was a thirty plus percent of my check take it yeah good bad or otherwise now so the unemployment record does not account for once again those who are chronically unemployed not looking the thing that all black people other than five percent of us all working it doesn't account for the working poor and so it says nothing about income inequality you got a job but he can barely meet your ability to get to the job by the time you get to pay every bill Maher affair and buy you a sandwich if work every day you have no money for anything else and so the wild they will top out this great unemployment number the fact that the matter is that when you look at black a wheel mobility out of poverty it is stagnant and had moved in a long time a four four eight nine two two seven zero three so that's the real number you need to look at you know look at the wealth gap between black and white yeah right here in the land of the median areas the **** income is eighty two thousand dollars you know when you drill down on black folks it's about sixteen thousand it I mean that's that's the reality let's go to Valerie Valerie how are you hi there how are you I'm doing fine okay we'll take a break you don't talk about the Washington high school situation we did Valerie was online I have the catcher online at the school board and they talk about using portions of Washington high school of four park well part and I'd tell vality come on touch touch tell us about it she is a alarm of Washington high school then we'll talk about that is that you have to watch all these

"Calling four four nine two seven zero three now because remember maybe like fifteen years ago. There was a Kelly Rowland remake of that psalm that bell song with her Nellie. And so what had happened was we're going to handle the band fair. I went to Clark Atlanta Martaban. So our band director several young who's Debendra Rover Westlake high school. Now he wanted to have pedalo bell perform with us while we play that song. The top of the chart freight. They will give you the throwback study taught to pay bills people pay bell people came back. We'll take you be glad to do it. For one hundred thousand dollars where grey day. So needless to say, we did not perform well pedal a Bill that year, but we didn't perform the gain twins who brought their own stripper on the field that the Georgia Dome. I'm not making that up y'all can go look back at the footage from the Honda battle the bands. So these girls who are working on the field. And none of us really is better because we had not actually rehearsed it or anything did the twins came out. They just started. Look, I play one note that whole field show. Now, I got my. Missed a whole paradigm. The Mr. the diamond formation the step to drill and everything. It was very entertaining. But whatever I hear that song. I think by that story involving pedalo Bill art calling four four eight nine two two seven zero three get you involved in the conversations great token to CJ great token there doornail about what comedians are going to do going forward because simply put you cannot censor comedy. And it's still work. And I'll I'll tell you exactly why. If you wanna see what censor comedy looks like go back to the late night talk shows in the nineteen fifties, and the nineteen sixties the, you know, the the Johnny Carson's and the Jimmy deans and the white guy in a suit smoking a cigarette. And then there are here's the top young median guy comes out and tell the story about its car not starting and that's what comedy is when you take all the offensiveness out. We'd take everything that might offend anybody out. And I just don't think that works. I don't think that you can set up with the science the community. See where that is in existence because frankly, it's supposed to be an outlet. It's supposed to be a way to get these things off your chest. And understand that other people have a humorous are a are a take on things that aren't the same as yours and a way to relax, and it just doesn't work. We're getting. Hey, just FYI. If you want to see some real comedy guys turn on the FOX and watch the falcons. Look, I'm not watching the falcons right before reason the TV is off. Yeah. We watch list. One Atlanta is champions champion if we won that's going to be the only. We have Christmas Coney adorable for championship e. Well, if you have a bit role is broke out in the field. And I think the falcons lost of the kicker anyway, we got live in Connecticut on line three. Well, look the falcons we have a w NBA championship. And we have a soccer championship. The two sports that matter the most right? Liberty and etiquette live over here. Hello. Hey, artistic my call five comedians. Hopefully, I can switch gays in a minute probably deal yooglie and also Godfrey because what they do is take the comedy. But also, they have the courage to deal with reality in terms of relations in this country. So without a doubt deal. And also Godfrey upcoming satellite. Those two brothers but cats which gave for a minute. Yeah. Go ahead. Okay. In two thousand twenty election, not less election presidential election. You only had the Democratic Party. Only two candidates Bernie Sanders Hilary Clinton the black vote didn't come out. So the put on making his dad this year, if you wanna stick with that was two thousand twenty if you want to stick with the same format being Kemulah Harris out of California in an also take whatever you want. You know what I'm saying? So that's what we should do if you want to be consistent. But if there's any credit party has fifteen damn candidates eleven let me put down make it. Right. Thirteen white it into blacks, then I'm leaving this party because what that does for wrong, it dilutes her chance in being the president, no doubt within my my camera. Harris is the most qualified we need white voters white democratic voters the for black people rather than have it all black people vote for white candidate watch this. If we see this that we know the Democratic Party. No, dan. Republicans. I wanna see a black candidate being nominated to be the presidential nominee in twenty twenty. I'm not making a little bit of sense. Are you following me? Cliff? You know, you don't get challenge on that. Right. So what what about Kamala Harris makes her qualified to be president? The experience I've seen a record, you know, tend to the sitting as a Senator even even the hearings the confirmation with cavenaugh. Hurry. Cory booker.

Now, you're doing now you're doing what aboutism. Now, you're saying. Well, what about this? What about that? I'm saying individually for Kamala Harris for white husband who's lot more black folks anybody in the country, what about her qualifies her to be the president of the United States of America. And how do we not won't be the same thing as Obama getting off to say, well, I'm the president of all people not a black people because of that y'all got to get back to the plantation. That's not to have it again. Okay. I'll give you that. Then I'll tell you what I'm gonna put you back on the spot, and you tell me a black candidate. That's the qualification of south support and stick with that about that. This is my thing. If these candidates won't black folks to turn out, it ain't really that difficult. Does get on the stage and say look at president. I'm gonna push for reparation for all the descendants a slaves. You have ninety nine percent black turnout. Do you think they're going to do that? You got a good point. So I'll hang up. So look don't don't come tell these folks all the time they'll come on here. The black folks to come save you and and come come out in record numbers the vote for you unless you're gonna put record amounts of policy in place for black folks, we're going to rebuild black communities.

You don't even know how to look at this stuff critically. I have this part of scripture. I have piped all day long. But you have not danced dare your the causal connection between that is that we talked about the ten million dollars that Emory gave through the chamber of commerce by the Peachtree pine building. And then put the homeless people out. And then I said just watch what happens for them. All of a sudden, they come out widowed billion multibillion dollar transportation Bill against who is number one position to receive most of the money for a transit station near them Emory. They jumped ahead of south DeKalb nearby. But look here. Find me the underdog theme song, my favorite little have no fear because the underdog is here. My good rid brother, Senator Ford. He added Alva, but he now out of service how you doing. Oh, man. Go home and sit down and relax you retired legislate door. Now, you go sit down somewhere. Bad. Let me tell you that. That was the activists before I got elected. I will continue to be even what about a by what we saw on news Alijosa dean and a bunch of people. I would be either. But for Dr deck Zeke, go take me out of here. But. You want to do that now because I got to be rented fight longtime. What what are we looking at here? What what do we tell us? What is your? That. Your thumbnail is a good introduction to this issue. Emery? The voters of the city of Atlanta voted a couple years ago on a referendum. That is going to raise two point five billion dollars that extra half that penny for transportation projects in the city of Atlanta. Now, everyone that even in the city at that point right to the city last year after the fact. After the vote. And now, they're. At the head of the line. They jumped they lied to get five hundred million dollars for a light rail to bury the Lindbergh station. So. We found out why how they were able to jump in line. But let me before I get into that. I just wanna say the west live from Hamilton homes and that had been on the on the draw for Lee twenty five years. I'd know on the. Yeah. I know I've no Qadeer all the time. So yeah. What would that the Emry line jumped ahead of that? It's out the cab is probably the one that we shafted. The worst. They are not getting that east line down. I twenty two stone crafts, right? So it's just a classic. Instance of a wealthy white institution organization ever university jumping allied over black. Black neighborhood, the black community and. The thing. That's so disappointing. Is that though the elected official that has spoken up for south west Atlanta. Getting in a west line was Representative Sheila Joan, I want all your listeners where they see Representative Joe represents the Collier heights Asheville area for speaking up and speaking out today at the bar board meeting tell us who's on this martyr board for because here's the thing. You know, some of the decision we can understand if we would these boards were headed by clansman somebody I how do we in a city like Atlanta, a so-called progressive city have this retrogressive kind of approach to politics and everybody I mean, Rachel can see what's happening here blind in from the grave could see what's happening here. What what what are we missing who's on this board that is supporting this going along wooded or not even raising a stink about it? Well, the city of Atlanta appointees, quiet. Oh, tell us. Dr rod Edmond is on that board. It didn't there. A couple of folk one woman who has who's been there have contract at the airport. I forget her name. Ashes a chair of is still right Robby ashes the chair as he said in four. Not a word not a word. But let's be very clear the real villains in our city hall. The mayor. And the city council has not said one word about the west line. I have not heard any Commissioner though, Michael Thurman wrote a letter a kind of soft letter. About south to cap, we have not heard very much from the people who ought to be speaking up in speaking out. So. Make sure we get it. Right. Let me take you. Make sure I got the maverick of two point five billion dollars. Right. That's going to be spent and what what is the geographical areas that there's two point five billion dollars both be spending that of the city of Atlanta. Okay. It did. So money. Yeah. So Emory's getting five hundred million right? They give myself relation that's one fifth of the money going to them. And then the beltline is getting between four hundred or four hundred fifty billion dollars. And we can't figure out what it is done in our community yet. Run-up housing calls. They ought to not get one read set until they follow through with their commitment on affordable housing. I hold on Jack and four we gotta take a quick break. We'll come back can't put a pin in that point. If outlines get four hundred million dollar where they're proposing to spend it these are the kind of civic learnings civic involvement. That you need to know about. Because all you hear is we're going to spend two point five billion dollars to make improvements tomorrow, but they didn't tell you the bulk of that money is going to one place Emory University. I've been telling you all this for how long now. The three four five months. Maybe when they did the transaction and some of us found out, whoa. Oh, that's where the money came from. And all of a sudden they done jumped ahead of everybody y'all better make these calls or connection and that these lives together to see we've been had. And that's why I'm saying at the state level at the city level. Just having a black face in there and good enough. It is not good enough. The very for.

To, run on Malaya's of back, okay. But you've. Found a whole okay. Hold on now? He has enough what's your game? What you really want to know because I. Go through this history line Clark Atlanta. University does not give Moore's Brown. This letter Truitt Kathy steps down he. Dan. Give the cooperation to Dan Cathy Dan Cathy is basically told by the brother and sister. They want in on the business so they divide, the business up, into three sections the foundation work this development work in. The running of the corporate offices and so the brother I think is You know, kinda. Sister candid. Controls I think foundation. Whatever the bottom? Line is a split it off? And they never followed through with the whole. Morris Brown piece at the same time. The city is talking about this. Redevelopment of this park this linear park. That. Became so controversial and acts the Kathy's switch dared to switch their basic investment away from. Ours Brown into the vine city and that's what, they do and, and so at the same time Morris Brown new Bishop. Come in who's from here Preston Williams Of the church and he decides that if Mars Brown is. Going to save any of his property it, needs to, file bankruptcy, to get. Rid of the, twenty five million reduce is debt liability and that's what they did in the middle of that here comes this. Notion about a new, stadium and mayor re read gets heavily involved in that, remember forcing friendship to sale of course they vote. For it in mount Vernon to sell and what he guaranteed them was that he has some, property that he would be. Able to help them get that property, will, Morris Brown so they tried to intercede by? Morris Brown Call the Bishop of meeting at city hall and then told him I got four million dollars for you to buy. Mars Brown all of his forty one acres And of course the Bishop told them, not only. Was he crazy but he was real crazy. In debt that meeting was always got up and left and we came forward with a hands off Morris Brown movement and basically it was to save the property, Moore's Brown's had forty one total Lakers and, a bunch of outlying, parcels that when it, went up to the bankruptcy court in order. To pay down debt Morris Brown pledged or sold portions? Of his property not for four million but for fourteen million the buyer for that, property was, invested Atlanta so would they thought they were, gonna get for four they end up paying fourteen, four and it, freed up all the Mars Brown debt you know other than just a little bit of it but the long and short of. That whole soliloquy if you will Invest Atlanta hose the property other than the yard Mars Brown still retain all of the prophet is commonly known as the yard which include fountain, hall in Griffin Hightower the administrative building Clark, Atlanta university always owned, the public administration department, the last building is closer to the street. In so there's no sedan Kukoc that in university look, this was an illegal sale that this property was not sold in pursuit of educational, purpose therefore, the that sell Dole's dollars need to be, repaid to Clark Atlanta university they sue the judge, agrees with them And so. Mark, Brown guided fourteen million dollars they won't they wanna fight over the out. Parcels then. They can fight over it You know and so that's kind of where that, is so they is culpability on the part of Clark university being greedy on the front end in. Not just signing the documents allowing Mars Brown. Emerge merge. Out of bankruptcy and allow for Arthur, ought to allow for true Kathy To pay twenty five million dollars had that been done then it had, been a very simple transaction but now they're in a they, want to be paid I don't think they, necessarily want, the property I think they won't be paid. By invested Lanta made whole for the property and in that probably will happen if when the city of Atlanta's sales because, I don't think you can do is sell a redevelop Ned already got in a deal with the With the boys and Girls Club I'm sorry Yup the YMCA rather YMCA to redevelop their corporate office on, what was Jordan hall toward down and then. They're gonna put their offices there so that's kind. Of the quick and fast man I could do a three hour lecture on, this and keep going without breathing? But now. What. Was your issue You know we had Kerman last man came. Out of HP instead of helping the school day no big opposite yeah well. I mean again welcome to Atlanta Like.

Just, did I didn't I didn't go up no he'll would know flag in as you can see a policy suggests that poor folks is not going to get a break in this in the. City until we get somebody. Else I hear in the street they call re would address whatever I look I deal with public policy and that, the end poor people are losing at every turn whether it was a, deal over.
