James Brown (May 3, 1933-December 25, 2006) at the Sports Arena, February 18, 1967. From the photo assignment sheet written up at our local daily: "Want some pix of Brown and audience as show winds up. Then want to watch for possible gang fight. Want you to be inconspicuous so as not to spur incidents yourself...."

The photographer returned with this photo and noted: "Since there was no riot or anything approaching a rumble, the emphasis is shifted to the show Brown put on as a Youth page feature. I did not spur any incidents."
