Mary Wilson Reflects on Motown Magic

The former Supreme recounts the trio's beginnings


In the early '60s, the Motown label was producing hit after hit — all from male singers. But three Detroit schoolgirls caught the eye and ear of legendary producer Berry Gordy, and soon the Supremes were taking the world by storm. Even though much of that world would not allow them in its restaurants or hotels.
