On this day in 1945, the United Nations charter came into effect. New York’s UN building itself wouldn’t be completed until 1952.
Ten years after the UN building finished, in another part of the Big Apple, James Brown performed at the Harlem Theater. It was recorded for posterity and released as an LP (LIVE AT THE APOLLO) the following year. And posterity was much better for it.
Music: “Crazy Love”–Van Morrison
Book: LORD FOUL’S BANE by Stephen R. Donaldson
