James Brown’s death, and the film ‘Dreamgirls’ has stimulated memories of 60s era soul music. Beginning in the late 50s, a number of African American popular performers, including James
Brown, tried to connect the freedom movement to the musical mainstream. This week’s show presents a collage of some of the key songs in that vein. Another program in our African American History Month series.
Hosted by Professor Dick Flacks.
