Notes

There was an error on page 13 of The Prize that I regret deeply and that I have corrected for all subsequent editions. I had written that Street Fight, a documentary about Cory Booker’s 2002 run for mayor by filmmaker Marshall Curry, was financed by Marshall’s brother, Boykin. This is inaccurate. Marshall Curry purposely financed the film without the help of his brother, who was a major political donor to Booker. The error could have left the impression that Curry’s work was “for hire” when in fact he purposely maintained financial independence to avoid any appearance of compromise. I witnessed Curry’s dogged and often courageous work on the film, which I consider an excellent piece of journalism and art– as did the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, in nominating it for an Oscar in 2006. — Dale Russakoff 2/17/2017
