During the 1960s, Motown became "The Sound of Young America," the music that inspired a generation. Join Motown historian, author and radio personality Tom Ingrassia for this multimedia presentation tracing the rise and popularity of Motown in the '60s. Using archival video and audio clips, Ingrassia will discuss how Motown was the music that brought people together--bridging the gaps during a turbulent time in American history. Following the lecture, Ingrassia will sign copies of his book--Reflections Of A Love Supreme: Motown Through The Eyes Of Fans--which was named Best Music Book of 2015 by the National Indie Excellence Awards. Ingrassia also is the award-winning host of the popular "Motown Jukebox" on WCUW 91.3FM in Worcester.
