South Carolina Celebrates Nappy Brown Day!

The State of South Carolina will honor Rhythm & Blues pioneer Nappy Brown with an official state proclamation declaring February 15, 2008, as "Nappy Brown Day" throughout the state. Nappy will visit Chapin High School in Chapin, South Carolina, to receive the proclamation and will speak to the students as part of Black History Month. Chapin is close to Pomaria, South Carolina, a beautiful small town that Nappy called home for several months. Nappy was both thrilled and a bit taken aback by such an unexpected honor.

Brown is one of the great voices in American music. In the mid-1950s, pre-dating Soul music, he was a major R&B star, with a number of hit singles on the charts, including his signature tune, "Don't Be Angry" and "The Right Time," a song later associated with Ray Charles.

Brown's most recent recording, Long Time Coming, was released on Blind Pig Records last September.
