Publisher Comments:

In 1959 songwriter Berry Gordy Jr founded the Motown record label in Detroit. The company name was to become synonymous with great music as Gordy took the sound of black America to the world. Motown racked up hit after hit, launching the careers of megastars like Diana Ross and the Supremes, and the Jackson 5.
