James Brown, the Most Sampled Man in Music, Get on Up Movie Opens, Augusta, July 24 at The Augusta Premiere.
Red Carpet & Official After Party, at Regal 20 Cinemas located at: 1144 Agerton Lane, Augusta, GA 30909. The Official “Get on Up” After Party will take place at The Augusta Museum of History on Reynolds Street in Augusta, GA 30901.
The man who soulfully influenced mega pop star Micheal Jackson who subsequently influences to this day, generations of musicians, artists and the business of pop culture, was from the town of Augusta, Georgia where “feeling good” was most likely a way and means of coping with the legacy of oppressive conditions of Jim Crow throughout the Ole South and social injustice in most parts of America.
James Brown turned oppression and lack of opportunity into music magic and millions. Hail to the Genius of his time! And Thanks for making us not only “Feel Good, and Dance” but remember our “Black is Beautiful” heritage, pride and inclusion of being American. We Love You Mr. Brown!
