Greetings! With the release of the motion picture “Detroit” and the AmNews’ Herb Boyd’s opus “Black Detroit: A People’s History of Self Determination” all eyes are on the Motor City. The Motown Museum has embarked on a $50 million fundraising effort with $400,000 raised at a June gala hosted by Lear Corp, which already offered a $750,000 donation. The Southfield company’s efforts amount to more than $1.1 million for the expansion project, which would transform the Hitsville, U.S.A site into a 50,000-square-foot exhibit, performance and retail complex. The Lear gift follows $6 million from Ford and UAW-Ford and $2 million from the William Davidson Foundation.
