Margaret Blanchard - 2/17/2017


Alex Gibney, executive producer/director of “Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown” on the making of the film and how Brown was “very much a part of the civil rights and black power movement in a way that was really transformative because he could speak to a mass audience in a way that so many people couldn’t.” The latest Peabody Spotlight focuses on Black Power & Creative Expression among African-American artists during the Civil Rights era.
