SC State Plans to Display James Brown Memorabilia


An exhibit of James Brown memorabilia is being organized at South Carolina State University.

Interim university President Leonard McIntyre told The (Charleston) Post and Courier that he secured the rights to show the items, which include clothing, shoes, awards, furniture and sheet music, through a contact he has with the late singer’s estate.

Brown died on Christmas Day 2006 of heart failure. He was 73.

The exhibit, which is expected to be ready by the middle of the summer, will be at the university’s IP Stanback Museum & Planetarium.
