DETROIT (WJBK) - Motown Museum in Detroit will be open on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Monday, January 15.
Kids 17 and under will get in free with a paying adult.
“Just as Martin Luther King Jr. broke down racial barriers, the Motown Sound brought people together from all walks of life and we are proud to open our doors on this special day to share the Motown story with all generations," says Motown Museum Chairwoman and CEO Robin Terry.
Motown’s Black Forum Label, a spoken word label created by Berry Gordy and the Motown Corporation in the ‘60s, was a venue for Black expression and education. The label served to capture the voices of African American poets and orators. The label recorded Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech.
