 Augusta Commissioners  say they’re honoring the good side of the God Father of Soul. 

This is the resolution approved  Tuesday,  it calls for  May 3rd  to  be James Brown Day in Augusta in perpetuity,

May 3rd is his birthday. 

The idea for  the James Brown Day came from Commissioner John Clarke. 

 “Everybody has got two sides and sometimes its not pretty there’s a thing called forgiveness which I know about it was just time to honor the man the music and the icon and let’s move forward,” said Commissioner Clarke. 

Clarke says the resolution was -not- in response to the commission decision last month, not to contribute 10 thousand dollars to Friday’s  James Brown Birthday bash at the Miller Theater.
