About Remembering James
From his early days first starting out and spanning nearly two decades of what would become a monumental career, we see how a divided country, the growing Civil Rights movement and the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shaped the work of legendary artist, James Brown. A six-piece band accompanies, bringing the passion of his music alive while offering a message of hope to a grief stricken nation looking for a moment of healing and celebration.
