    January 9, 2016 hardcover

    John Brown to James Brown delves into a distinctively American saga as it unfolds on one small piece of farm property in rural Western Maryland. It is on this site that: ~John Brown led the raid on Harper's Ferry, touching off the Civil War and sparking the abolition of slavery; ~The Black Elks purchased and developed the property a century later to create a memorial to Brown; ~The giants of rhythm and blues performed--including James Brown, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, the Drifters, and scores of others. These stories, intertwined with those of a gifted promoter and thousands of young people who experienced early R&B music at John Brown's Farm, bring to life an ideal that heralded in America's founding documents and still beats in the heart of mankind today---liberty!
