PRESENTED ON AUG 20, 2015

John Milroy is from the Detroit area and Motown is one of his favorite subjects. In this talk he tours the Motor City's rich history via Woodlawn Cemetary - the final resting place of many famous music legends who resided nearby.

"If the grey stones of these fences could talk, or more accurately, sing, they would tell the story of Detroit through the rise and fall of the civil rights movement, through the halcyon days of Motown."
