Say It Loud – I'm Black and I'm Proud" is a funk song performed by James Brown and written with his bandleader Alfred "Pee Wee" Ellis in 1968. The great arranger Belford "Sinky" Hendricks wrote the arrangement for Part 1. Hendricks also arranged the songs "Please, Please, Please", Browns' first hit single, "Try Me", "There Was a Time", "Lost Someone", "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag"s, and other James Brown recordings.

Produced by James Brown. Album Say It Loud: I’m Black and I’m Proud. Say It Loud: I’m Black and I’m Proud Lyrics. Say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud! Say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud! I worked on jobs with my feet and my hands But all the work I did was for the other man Now we demand a chance to do things for ourselves We're tired of beating our head against the wall And working for someone else. All right now, good God You know we can do the boogaloo Now we can say with the funky talk, and we do Sometimes we sing and we talk You know we jump back and do the camel walk All right now, all right All right. Say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud! Say it loud: I'm black and I'm proud!

Although historical evaluations of James Brown's work during the last half of the '60s tend to focus on the innovative funk of his biggest hit singles, his repertoire - both live and on record - in fact remained pretty versatile. Like his other '60s studio albums, Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud is more R&B/pop-conscious than a lot of listeners would expect, mixing the funky monsters "Say It Loud (I'm Black and I'm Proud)" and "Licking Stick" with soul ballads. It's a notch above similar albums from earlier in the decade,.

The events surrounding the release, in 1968, of the single Say It Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud provide a glimpse into the complex and sometimes contradictory belief systems of Mr Dynamite. The only notable cash spike during this downward slide happened because of The Payback album. Never one to ignore a new trend, Brown got on board with the blaxploitation boom and recorded the original film soundtracks to both Black Caesar and Slaughter’s Big Rip Off in 1973.
