Through lectures, photographs, CDs, film clips, Q&A sessions, and the use of live music, this course will concentrate on the people who started, nurtured and established the label as the driving force behind American popular music at that time. Learn about Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and other icons. This course continues where Part 1 left off, but Part 1 is not a prerequisite.
