Say It Loud - James Brown

Legbamel Not-Pop

What would Black History Month be without James Brown? Boring, that's what. For today, as my contribution to remembering the history of African-American people in the US, let's enjoy an atypically political song from The Godfather of Soul. Say It Loud (I'm Black and I'm Proud) not only offers some insight into the mindset of people in the late 1960s but a funky beat and some classic James Brown wails and squeals. As an anthem, Say It Loud has a lot to be said for it. Share any other nominees you have for Black History Month theme songs, if you would. I'm curious to see what others find as stirring (and/or funky).
