Official City of Savannah, Georgia, proclamation document, one page, 8.5 x 14, April 25, 1972. The document proclaims the week of May 7, 1972 as "James Brown Anti-Drug Week," and is signed at the conclusion in black felt tip by Mayor John C. Rousakis, as well as the clerk of council. The document reads, in part: "Whereas, heroin and other hard drugs are a major threat to the health and well-being of our people, young and old; and Whereas, James Brown, a talented and dynamic entertainer and a recognized leader in the fight against drug abuse, has written and recorded 'King Heroin,' a soulful song that carries a powerful and moving anti-drug message; and Whereas, Mr. Brown will be in our city to give a performance at the Savannah Civic Center on May 12, bringing this powerful message in person; now therefore: I, John P. Rousakis, the Mayor of Savannah, proclaim the week of May 7, 1972, as James Brown Anti-Drug Week." The gold foil city seal and red ribbon affixed to the lower left remain fully intact. In fine condition.
