Motown: The Sound of Young America

Join Adam White, the author of Motown: The Sound of Young America, as he reveals the stories of the many women who were driving forces in the success of the groundbreaking record label, both in front of the mic and behind the music.

From Gwen and Anna Gordy (sisters of founder Berry) and Raynoma ‘Miss Ray’ Liles, through Diana Ross, Martha Reeves and Mary Wilson, right up to the present-day president Ethiopia Habtemariam – one of the highest-ranking African American women in today’s US music industry – the Motown beat has been powered by talented women for 60 years. White shines a spotlight on voices beyond those so famously etched in vinyl.
