How and Why Rock Music is R&B

The impact of Rhythm and Blues upon society is powerful.  Another  example occurred in 1968.  James Brown and Alford Ellis wrote the song "Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud." Brown's monster hit recording helped negroes around the world accept being called black. However, there is much more to the Detroit, Michigan cultural revolution.
