    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.

    Bishop James Long, Archbishop for the United States Old Catholic Church

    in Entertainment

    Bishop James was born in Louisville, Kentucky and was raised Roman Catholic.  He attended a Roman Catholic grade school and it was during the time while he was attending kindergarten that he knew that he had a calling to serve as a priest.  His mother had asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up and James pointed at the priest and said, “I want to do what he does.”  


     


    From then on, his calling to serve as a priest grew stronger as the years progressed until he decided to join the seminary and begin his formation.


     


    James attended St. Meinrad College but because of financial problems, the school had to close its doors.  Therefore, he transferred to Loyola University in Chicago and graduated.


     


    He continued his priestly studies by joining Saint Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois.  It was during this time that James began working closely with his spiritual director and through prayer, he decided that God was calling him to serve as a priest within the Independent Catholic Church.  


     


    Because of his theological differences with the Roman Catholic Church, James felt that it was better to be ordained within the Independent Catholic Church.  This decision was not an easy one and it was a decision that he made out of respect for the Roman Catholic Church and his calling.  


     


    He is currently the Archbishop for the United States Old Catholic Church and offers Spiritual and Life help for those who seek his assistance.
