Motown, The Truth is a Hit at the Schomburg Center, 515 Lenox Avenue at 135th Street, running through July 26th. Motown founder Berry Gordy is quoted as saying "The truth is a hit." And in truth, Detroit’s Motown Records became the voice of an entire generation. The Truth Is a Hit seeks to explore Gordy’s notion of the truth by tracing black music from its African roots through slavery, Jim Crow, the Great Migration, urban America, the Civil Rights and anti-war movements, up to the present day.
