Program Description

Event Details

In Honor of Black History Month, we'll be traveling back to Detroit in the 1960's. Motown Records produced hits as efficiently as the Ford Motor Company produced automobiles - 110 Top Ten hits to be exact! It was the "Sound of Young America" sung by performers like The Supremes, The Temptations, Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder. Using audio and visual content we'll trace the amazing musical journey from the power soul of "Dancing in The Streets" and "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" to the psychedelic soul of "Cloud Nine" and "What's Going On" to the pop soul of The Jackson 5, timeless music that moved us then and moves us now.

Registrants will receive a Zoom link via email. Participants must have a phone, tablet or laptop in order to participate. If you need any help, please email us at or call (630)653-0755.
