Director Tate Taylor and Actor Chadwick
Boseman Celebrate James Brown 
With a preview screening of the new film Get On Up
Wednesday, July 23 - 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

 In his follow-up to the Academy Award®-nominated The Help, Tate Taylor directs 
Boseman, who played Jackie Robinson in 42,
as James Brown in Get On Up. Based on
the incredible life story of the Godfather of Soul, the film takes a fearless
look inside the music, moves, and moods of Brown, taking audiences on the
journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most
influential figures of the 20th century. Boseman is joined in the drama by
Nelsan Ellis, Dan Aykroyd, Viola Davis, Craig Robinson, Octavia Spencer, Lennie
James, Tika Sumpter, and Jill Scott.

In this evening celebrating James Brown,
hear from Taylor and Boseman as they discuss the legendary performer and the
making of the film. Our own Dwan Reece, curator of music and performing arts
for the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture

collecting in the area of music and the performing arts and curating the
permanent music exhibition, Musical Crossroads.
