On April 5, 1968, 24 hours after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr., James Brown delivered an emotive, electric performance that confirmed his place in the pantheon of music greats. More important, it brought back a city and a nation from the brink. Here is the story of James Brown through the prism of this one immortal concert. Explains how Brown rose from dire poverty to become a self-made millionaire and the most important figure in pop music. Details Brown’s place at the center of black culture and his often complex relationship with the Civil Rights movement. Delves deeply into Brown’s music, exploring how his unique sound led to the birth of funk and how his stirring stage presence forever changed pop performance. Photos.
