09/25/15: Media Roundtable Week In Review; 'Six Words' Documentary; Clean Water Music Festival

Media Roundtable Week in Review Logo

We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Tim Gibbons, Jacksonville Business Journal editor; A.G. Gancarski, Florida Politics writer; and Claire Goforth, Folio Weekly reporter.

Topics include the controversial remarks made by State Rep. Janet Adkins concerning Congresswoman Corrine Brown's district, tensions between Mayor Lenny Curry and the JEA Board of Directors, and more.

After Jacksonville’s unsuccessful attempt to pass an updated Human Rights Ordinance in 2012, award-winning documentary filmmaker Bill Retherford began work on a film looking at the issue. His film, "Six Words," will screen this week at Sun-Ray Cinema and UNF. Retherford and Dan Merkan of the Jacksonville Coalition for Equality join us with a preview.

And we speak with Jordyn Jackson and Shawn Fisher, of the local duo Flagship Romance, about the 4th annual Clean Water Music Festival to benefit the nonprofit Charity: Water.
