The Night James Brown Saved Boston ★★★½

The greatest collection of performers and musicians ever assembled was James Brown and the James Brown Band. They could do anything including saving a city from racial violence and this is the story of how they did it on the night of April 5, 1968. Among fears that the city of Boston would erupt in violence, a man named Brown and another named White put together a televised concert days after the assassination of MLK. The show was a success and the JB's saved the day. If you want proof that demigods exist watch Clyde Stubblefield or Jabo Starks play.
