Black People : LA Jury Awards $5 Million to Funk Legend Sly Stone


Feb 15, 2007

A Los Angeles Superior Court jury ruled for the 71-year-old performer in his action against his ex-manager Gerald Goldstein, attorney Glenn Stone and Even St. Productions Ltd.

"It's a good day for Sly, it's a good day for entertainers in general," said one of his attorneys, Nicholas Hornberger. "This was an important verdict for people that are artists, entertainers, music composers, etc."

Stone, whose real name is Sylvester Stewart, led the group Sly and the Family Stone to a string of hits in the 1960s and early '70s including "Everyday People," ''Dance To The Music" and "Family Affair." But heavy drug use began to take a toll

It also sounds like they took advantage of him based on his lifestyle, and I'm glad he got justice. A few years back I read where Leon wanted to play him in a movie about him.

Also, on the real tip, that beard and blond curl ain't working. But being different is good sometimes.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
