    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.

    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.
