THIS WEEK IN BLACK ROCK (JULY 16-25)


*************************************************
FAMILY MUST HELP FAMILY!

Noted guitarist Ronny Drayton and his family are still being stressed to the maximum by the
New York City criminal justice system.
Ronny’s son Donovan is fighting to prove his innocence, but court is costly and eats time.
His next date is Tuesday, August 5…

If you can, SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!
This message from Ronny:

We are back in court Tuesday, August 5th at 9AM,
Queens County Criminal Court House, 125-01 Queens Boulevard at 82nd Street, Kew Gardens, Queens, NY .
We will be in tap-c, on the 3rd floor, Judge Hanophy.

The train stop is Union Turnpike,
E & F trains both stop there—it’s a half block from the train.

We need the power of soul in the court room. Come and stand with us.
We need all the real help we can get.
And if you know someone who can really help us, holler at me.
Don has been in 9 months now. He is holding.
G-d bless him, he is my only son.

With respect, Ronny D rayton
