Description
Two audio cassettes. A meeting featuring council member Ronald Foreman; David Closson, the Director of the Florida Folklife Program; folklorist Peggy Bulger; a representative from the Florida Secretary of State's office; and former folk festival organizer Thelma Boltin. They met to hear public commentary on the changing direction of the Florida Folk Festival, including installation of a revolving schedule that would limit how many times a performer could perform from year to year. Committee members discussed the changes as a way to bring diversity and improved representation to the festival. Members of the public who made comments included Stetson Kennedy, who criticized the Festival's over-emphasis on white culture, Will McLean, and folk musicians and artists who were angered at not being invited to return to the festival that year. In addition, the discussion centered on problems over compensating participants equitably. Includes heated exchanges between the public and participants and the council members and folklorists.
