On April 4, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis. The next day, James Brown sang, and the city of Boston didn't burn down. This DVD tells the story of the pivotal role that Brown - and that particular concert - played in the political, social, and cultural history of the country. Using actual performance footage and personal recollections of Brown's band members, friends like activist Rev. Al Sharpton, personal manager Charles Bobbitt, Princeton Professor Dr. Cornel West, Boston citizens, those who attended the concert, politicians (including former Boston Mayor Kevin White), and Newsweek's David Gates, this DVD tells this compelling story.
