  • In the immediate wake of Martin Luther King's assassination, many of America's inner cities became fraught with riots, and the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston was threatening to erupt once and for all. Nervous at the possibility, Boston's mayor contacted soul legend James Brown, who had a major concert scheduled for the night after the historic murder, and asked for help. Brown, already a burgeoning civil rights hero, allowed the concert to be televised, and urged his fans to stay home--a peace-keeping move now credited with keeping the city from burning. VH1 "Rock Doc" THE NIGHT JAMES BROWN SAVED BOSTON features rarely seen footage of the historic performance, and explores the remarkable events of the tragic day.
