Established in 1967 in MI - Founded by Berry Gordy, who created Motown Record Inc. in 1960. It was the first record label owned by an African-American to primarily feature African-American artists, such as Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, The Temptations and The Jackson 5, all of whom achieved crossover success. In 1972, Gordy produced the successful and Academy Award nominated film "Lady Sings the Blues," starring Diana Ross, a semi-factual film about the jazz singer Billie Holiday. In 1988, Gordy was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 1994 he published his autobiography "To Be Loved."
