St. Charles Public Library

Carnegie Community Room

Celebrate Black History Month with a musical journey to the Motor City.

In Detroit in the 1960s, 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, music historian Gary Wenstrup will 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.
