A Legendary Evening with Mary Wilson
7:00 PM ET
As a founding and longest-running member of the Supremes, Mary Wilson is one of Motown’s legendary performers. The Supremes remain one of the most successful and glamorous groups in music history, with twelve number-one singles on the Billboard charts. On the sixtieth anniversary of Motown’s founding by Berry Gordy, Ms. Wilson will discuss how an independent record label conquered the world, making the Supremes international stars. She will especially talk about the impact of television spreading her music to people of all ages during the sixties. Highlights from the Paley Archive will be screened and questions from the audience welcomed.
