The film documents that remarkable concert and the politics around it. Boston Mayor Kevin White and his colleagues almost by accident realized that by televising the James Brown concert they could keep people indoors that night prevent widespread rioting. The film is almost testimony to the power of music in general and the power of James Brown's music in particular. The film is a tribute to the Godfather of Soul and the role he would come to play in working for civil rights. The Night James Brown Saved Boston featuring Cornel West and James Brown is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, streaming with subscription on Peacock Premium, free on Peacock, and 2 others. It's a documentary movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.3 (197 votes).
