    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.

    The Lundyn Brown Show Episode: Marriage Soup for the Soul

    in Culture

    "I think the biggest issue in marriage is boundary problems. Spouses so often try to change the other in the name of helpfulness. The truth is the only person you can change is you. You married them the way they are. If they're a slob, they probably were since childhood. The best you're going to do is change your response."


    — Gina Holmes, author of Wings of Glass, March 2013 


    We miss you all and we hope that you'll be joining us for tonight's show! That's right! We're back live TONIGHT at 7:30pm CST! We're talking about marriage in our show titled "Marriage Soup for the Soul"
