Godfather of Soul Part IIII

As all the celebrities came in town for the funeral services of James Brown, I was put on celebrity watch at one of the big hotels in the area on Friday evening. The private funeral ceremony was held Friday afternoon in North Augusta and we figured most would return before going to dinner. As it turns out I didn't see all that many but I did get a photo of singer dancer M.C. Hammer who shook a few hands as he walked in. A nice guy actually. We decided to bag it at 7pm, so about 7:20 I stepped inside to shake Dick Gregory's hand. After exchanging hellos I turned to leave and in walks Jesse Jackson and of course I was forbidden to shoot any photos inside the lobby...figures.
