    When: April 14, 1960

    What: Originally founded by Berry Gordy, Jr., “Hitsville” became one of the first black-owned record labels. With its iconic artists and songwriters like Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, The Supremes and The Jackson 5, its pop/R&B “Motown Sound” helped to integrate the American music scene.

    In celebration of Black Music Month, TheUrbanDaily’s “It’s All Black Music” presents 100 Rewarding Black Music Moments, sponsored by Southwest Airlines.

    Each Black Music Moment is associated with an actual place that you can visit. During the month of June, check in to at least three of these places on Foursquare to unlock TheUrbanDaily’s exclusive “It’s All Black Music” Badge. Check out the locations and details on our Foursquare page!
