A Celebration of Black History Month!!
Berry Gordy wrote the Jackie Wilson hit Lonely Teardrops
but barely made any money. So he started his own record company named Motown. The label played an important role in the racial integration of popular music achieving crossover success. Motown would launch the careers of Diana Ross & the Supremes, Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and The Jackson Five.
Join us for this special event, presented by Rick Feingold,
teacher of American Business History at Bergen Community College. The presentation includes classic
