The birth of Motown: January 12, 1959

Founded by Berry Gordy Jr. in Detroit as Tamla Records, Motown was key to the racial integration of pop, and became music's most successful African American-owned label. Motown labels introduced to the world the Supremes, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and the Temptations -- who helped score 79 Billboard Top Ten records between 1960 and 1969.
