Author Kit O’Toole will discuss how Motown began as the first black-owned label in 1959, reached widespread national success, and would substantially transform music and culture. This lecture explores the evolution of the label, from its beginnings through its 1960s heyday, 1970s political statements, and the 1980s funk and R&B. Registration is required.
