FINAL DECISION ON SUSPENSION OF

WATTS TOWERS ARTS CENTER DIRECTOR

MINGUS

At the September 13th meeting of the Los Angeles

Civil Service Commission, ROSIE LEE HOOKS

was found NOT GUILTY on all charges stemming

from having a mural of Charles Mingus painted

on the Youth Arts Center named after him.

HER SUSPENSION  WAS REVOKED!

Some of the Cultural Affairs Department’s management

may have acted in ignorance or incompetence, but

at least one administrator in the Department

knowingly gave false testimony under oath.

The question remains:

WILL THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES HOLD THE DEPARTMENT ACCOUNTABLE FOR ITS MALFEASANCE IN SUSPENDING MS. HOOKS?
