„Get Down, The Influence Of James Brown“ ist eine neue Mini-Doku in drei Teilen, die sich rund um den Einfluss von James Brown dreht. Teil 2 handelt vom „Funky President“.
This second episode explores the fascinating and unpredictable politics of James Brown while following the influence of his second most sampled track of all time, “Funky President (People It’s Bad).” Touching on the civil rights movement and Brown’s seminal “Say It Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud,” Funky President shows how James Brown, as well as his musical peers and successors, has been able to encourage social change and raise political concern from a black American perspective.
