“I teach class, and class can turn the heads of kings and queens,” often said Maxine Powell, Motown’s longtime director of artistic development and etiquette master. What was Powell’s role in shaping the identity of Motown’s greatest stars like the Supremes? Mary Wilson of the Supremes discusses her experience with Powell in this special conversation with Meredith Rutledge-Borger, Curator at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Wilson and Rutledge-Borger also will reflect on Motown’s influence in shaping Cleveland’s and Clevelanders’ identities in the 1960s and 70s.
