    Motown was the music that inspired a generation, a trendsetting sound whose artists broke down racial, gender and societal barriers. This engaging multimedia presentation traces the development of, and interconnections between the escalating popularity of the Motown Sound: The Sound of Young America, and the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. From his perspective as a pop music historian and with the help of archival video and music clips, Tom Ingrassia will take you on a musical journey back to a turbulent time in American history. Held in conjunction with WAMs AFTER HOURS program, and the exhibition "Kennedy to Kent State: Images of a Generation."
