The Night James Brown Saved Boston

The Night James Brown Saved Boston

The title of this film - "James Brown Saved Boston" - is part hyperbole. But there is no doubt his work in the city went a long way toward stemming the tide of violence that followed the slaying of civil rights leader Martin Luther King. The nation had erupted in flames following the assassination and Boston looked set to be another site of chaotic unrest.
James Brown was an entertainer par excellence. When he takes the stage you take notice. His wild screams and hollers accompanied by audacious dance moves make for astonishing viewing. This documentary film of course presents highlights from Mr. Brown's electrifying set (which was broadcast live on Boston public television) but it also features interviews with key players of the day who along with Brown helped keep peace in the city. A well-crafted overview of a dramatic period in our country's history, with some powerful music to boot.
