Come Celebrate Black History Month with Motown Museum!

Motown Museum Presents BLACK FORUM FRIDAYSA Celebration of Thought and Expression.

The Black Forum Label—a spoken word label created by Berry Gordy and the Motown Corporation in the 70’s—was created to function as a platform for Black expression and education. To celebrate Black History Month, the Museum will launch for the first time the Black Forum Friday event series and provide a listening experience of selected Black Forum albums, while educating attendees about the history of Motown’s involvement in the Civil Rights Movement.

Each event will offer guests the opportunity to hear portions of two albums and participate in moderated community dialogue beginning at 5:30 p.m. every Friday in February (February 5, 12, 19, 26), with the listening portion of the program from 6-7:30 p.m. Guests who make a minimum donation of $5 will have the chance to walk through the Museum before and after the program portion of the event.
