"Detroit '67" Synopsis

It’s 1967 in Detroit and motown music is getting the party started. Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning the basement of their late parents’ house into a cool after-hours club. But when a mysterious woman finds her way into their lives, the siblings begin to clash over more than the family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does the city around them, and they find themselves caught in the middle of the ’67 riots in America’s Motor City.

"Chasin' Dem Blues" Synopsis

The Untold Story of Paramount Records, a multi-media musical celebration. Storytellers' accounts of how a small Midwest town changed the landscapes of American music, and ushered in the sound of the early 20th century, a sound that still reverberates today. Paramount Records was located in Grafton, Wisconsin, during the time of the Great Depression, and was a small recording studio in an old chair factory. Louis Armstrong, Alberta Hunter, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Skip James, Son House, Ma Rainey, and even Jimmie O’Bryant’s Famous Original Washboard Band recorded for Paramount Records.
