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.

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.
