On this edition of In Black America, producer/host John L. Hanson Jr. speaks with Abdul "Duke" Fakir, founding member of The Four Tops, and Mary Wilson, best-selling author, former U.S. cultural ambassador and founding member of The Supremes.

They  talk about growing up in Detroit, forming their singing groups, signing with Motown Records, and why their music is just as popular today as it was when they first recorded it.
