    James Brown Music: Watch James Brown's daughter Dr. Yamma Brown

    in Culture

    EURweb’s Lee Bailey caught up with Dr. Yamma Brown  James Brown's daughter on the red carpet at the Essence Festival in New Orleans. She talks about the film, 


    “Get On Up” the new James Brown bio-pic the family’s reaction to it, her father’s legacy.


    ------.


    Portside Article: James Brown belongs to us, the black masses, and for us to be excluded from the creative team that made this movie is an obscenity. I'm aware that Spike Lee was involved briefly.


    James Brown was a civil rights icon. Put James in the pantheon of the most impactful black men of the 20th century, and he would not be out of place. How can I make such an assertion? One song: "I'm Black and I'm Proud."


    Before that song, if you wanted to start a fight with a man of color, all one had to do was call him black. Up until the mid-sixties, we were trying define ourselves: not colored anymore, now Negro. But black was not something we called ourselves. And along comes this little man and proudly states, "I'm black and I'm proud!" He took the thing that the oppressor used to bludgeon us and made it a weapon of pride for us.

    Topically Yours - Charles Bobbit (James Brown Mgr)

    in Entertainment

    Host Deardra Shuler talks to Charles Bobbit, James Brown friend and manager. Bobbit will talk about his rags to riches story with Deardra.  Bobbit also managed Michael Jackson and was the personal advisor to President Omar Bongo of Gabon. Born in 1930, in the back woods of North Carolina, Charles was whisked to Brooklyn, NY by his eldest sister after the loss of his mother to cancer.  During his young adult years, he worked as a porter. He later worked for the New York City Transit Authority, laying rails at night.  Later he deemed the entertainment industry was an escape from menial labor, although he could neither sing nor dance.
    Mr. Bobbit’s first introduction to the realization of his dream was when he first saw Mr. James Brown, “The Godfather of Soul” perform at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, NY.  He was awestruck and proclaimed to his wife that he would one day work as Brown’s Personal Manager.  Although thwarted originally, by 1965, he won a job as James Brown's valet and later became Brown's friend and manager up to the day Brown died. The book, "Making it  Happen," tells Brown and Bobbitt's story.  It was Mr Bobbit who gave James Brown the title, “Godfather of Soul.” Bobbit was instrumental in the arrangement of  “Say it Loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud.”  and the musical scores for the movie, “Black Caesar,” starring Fred Williamson.  Bobbit met President Omar Bongo of Gabon and worked with Bongo's son cutting a few albums.  The family hired Bobbit as their advisor taking Bobbit to heights that he couldn’t even imagine. He later worked with  Michael Jackson becoming his friend and confidante.

    Health Collectors Dr. James and Semaj Brown stops by Good Deeds w/ Dr. Renee Sun

    in Motivation

    Dr. James and Semaj Brown stops by Good Deeds w/ Dr. Renee Sunday. Never in her wildest dreams, did Semaj Brown, co-founder of the Planted Kingdom Project ever imagine transforming herself into vegetable characters and bringing them into life. Nor did her husband, Dr. James Brown, a family physician, ever think that he would be her front man, warming up audiences with his humor, telling his story of how his wife saved him from his daily fast food diet, and ultimately saved his life. What did he do next? He proposed, they married, and the two have gone on to make history, transforming lives in their Flint, Michigan community.


    Semaj Brown created vegetarian meals that are savory and satisfying, that would prove to help the couple lose weight. "Adopting a new healthy lifestyle of eating plant based foods, and exercise, was key to our losing a combined 200 pounds," says Semaj. After losing 75 pounds, Dr. Brown decided to motivate his patients and others in the community with his "Pounds Down Challenge", where the individual who loses the most weight wins $1,000.00. "Money is a motivating factor, for sure. January 25th, we will present our third "Pounds Down Challenge" winner, which is sponsored by my practice."


    The Browns took to the airwaves hosting radio talk show programs, where Dr. Brown would answer health related questions, and the couple created the segment: "What's for Dinner Mrs. Brown?" Semaj, an accomplished poet, began to creatively give a voice to the vegetables that were the "stars" of her recipes.
