It's the day after the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King. America's inner cities are on fire, and the city of Boston is looking to James Brown to help stop it from exploding and imploding. "The Night James Brown Saved Boston" focuses on James Brown's extraordinary, history-making concert at the Boston Garden on April 5, 1968, putting the events of that day into the context of the times, and for the first time, telling the dramatic story of what happened that night, spotlighting this crucible moment in the life and career of James Brown. Up to that moment, James Brown has been a great artist, a successful businessman, a civil rights activist and an American patriot. On April 5, 1968, he becomes a hero.
