professor_nyembo James Brown an African American singer was born on May 3, 1933 in Barnwell, South Carolina. Brown worked his way to the top of the funk and R&B music ladder earning the moniker "The Godfather of Soul." His unique vocal and musical style influenced many artists. James Brown was also known for his social activism, both in his songwriting ("America is My Home," "Black and Proud") and advocating the benefits of education to schoolchildren. #jamesbrown #gfos #godfather #godfatherofsoul #soul #funk #gfunk #zaire74 #JoeMadison #UrbanView #BlackHistory #soulmusic #africadiaspora #neverforget #jemesouviens #AfricanDiaspora #zaire #Kinshasa #donking #blackmusic #AfricanAmerican 23h

we.love.chadwickboseman Can you believe it's been a year since #GetOnUp #GetOnUpMovie was release to theaters? (August 1, 2014!) If I didn't see this movie, this page would not exist. I'm a late comer concerning the skills of #ChadwickBoseman due to my pickiness of television and movie watching! I throughly enjoyed this movie several times and I'm sure most of you all have too! :-) #JamesBrown #JamesBrownMovie #NelsanEllis #JillScott #TikaSumpter #TateTaylor #CraigRobinson #TheFunkDontQuit #soulbrothernumberone #godfatherofsoul #rcnocrop 1d
  •   we.love.chadwickboseman Yes indeed! @macbeth4ever looking forward to seeing him in three movies next year (gods of Egypt/ Message From the King/ Captain America Civil War and I'm sure he's working in other projects. :) 1d
  •   tonya_meggi Yes!! My daughter and brother (who is a huge James Brown fan) went with me to the first showing...we had a ball!! Laughed, cried, danced in our seats! Loved, loved, LOVED #ChadwickBoseman in this! His performance was untouchable! He stole my heart️!! Btw, still can not believe that he wasn't nominated for an Academy Award!?! Groundbreaking movie and excellent performances🏼 @we.love.chadwickboseman 1d
  •   we.love.chadwickboseman Cool! @tonya_meggi in my opinion if Selma didn't come out then Chad would've gotten some nominations. But that's just my opinion! 1d
  •   tonya_meggi I concur! @we.love.chadwickboseman 1d
  •   femmeetfilm @tonya_meggi @we.love.chadwickboseman it really shouldn't have mattered what was out. He definitely gave Oscar worthy performance & should have been nominated. Truly was Spectacular & definitely snubbed. Bigger & Better coming! & yes, time has flown by very quickly! 1d
  •   tonya_meggi Valid point. @femmeetfilm 1d
  •   we.love.chadwickboseman It shouldn't have but I feel like he was forgotten. Mostly due to the political and social issues going on around the time Selma came out. @femmeetfilm @tonya_meggi 24h
  •   femmeetfilm @we.love.chadwickboseman that's true. However, when the @theacademy did the viewing it had recently been announced that he would be Black Panther & there was tons of speculation about #ChadwickBoseman "sudden notoriety" around that time, which typically means that there is more excitement about him as an actor & one would suspect give him an edge in the lead actor category. From my understanding, I think the final edit (as we saw in theaters) was what was/is a turnoff to most movie-goers including the Academy. That's hearsay, but may be some truth to it since #GetOnUp doesn't follow a typical biopic format. TateTaylor knew he was taking a risk & as with all risks, you may not always be rewarded in ways you expect/anticipate. Either way and in my opinion, it kinda shows how the Academy is lacking in separating the overall picture from the lead actors & other supporting cast. They need better eyes/ears/skill sets (ie diversity) from my view. Many including @directher are championing the effort to diversify the Academy among their personal endeavors to highlight & create models/modalities for diversity in the arts as it relates to film, stage, multimedia, and other mediums. Good stuff @tonya_meggi 24h
