The neighborhood like Smokey Robinson Mary Wells Marvin Gaye Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross to sing for his new label Meanwhile the country was on the brink of a cultural revolution and one of the most powerful agents of change in the following decade would be this group of young black performe. I grew up worshiping the Motown sound and every month I walked to the newsstand to buy Right On magazine to read and obsess about the comings and goings of the Jackson Five Diana Ross and other Motown stars Rhythm Ride written for middle school and older children is a fast paced fun and lyrical trip through the history of Motown We learn about the talented and driven African Americans who made the Sound of Young America omnipresent while also learning about the history of the the Civil Rights movement Narrated by the Groove a deeply knowledgeable expressive and passionate entity we don't know who it is the Groove takes us through the ups and downs and excitement of that time One of the best parts of the book was seeing how the company was built star by star song by song with everybody having to compete and elbow their way into the Motown sound Everybody had the potential to be heard and count The other part of the book that I really appreciated is that the Groove does not mince words about the racial issues of the time and really calls out how Black people were dehumanized and exploited by Whites The Groove tells it like it is but also reminds us to take care of ourselves and comfort ourselves as we learn this harsh history It is put into context of the Motown story and is real and right yet hopeful as we learn about the people who were working to make change and also make great musicI do think that the author glosses over some of the difficulties that the stars and musicians etc had about getting a fair share from Berry Gordy By the end there was hard feelings about money etc and I don't think it should be a big part of the story I think it should be notedMy daughter is 10 years old and I can't wait to give her a copy of this bookThank you for allowing me to review this book for an honest opinion
