James Brown – Godfather of Soul – Biography – 2 videos

James Brown In Eighteen Minutes – video

The following is extracted from The Big Picture:
“Get On Up” is the new biopic out on James Brown. David Remnick of the The New Yorker calls it “the second-best film ever made about James Brown.”

Tartan: Its Journey Through the African Diaspora’

CIAD presents ‘Tartan: Its Journey Through the African Diaspora’

By ARC Magazine Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

 The Costume Institute of the African Diaspora (CIAD) presents its first major project titled ‘Tartan: Its Journey through the African Diaspora’, which tells the story of how tartan travelled around the world and through its influence led to aspects of material culture being developed  in certain parts of Africa and the Diaspora. The project looks at how these cultures adapted, adopted or absorbed this influence to bring significance to fabrics such as madras cloth. Madras cloth was created in India and then sold to people in the Caribbean, the fabric has been used in the development of many islands national dress.
