The Jackson 5
Michael Jackson's career started in Detroit at Motown Records with his brothers as the Jackson 5, so the first anniversary of his death Friday is being marked by the Motown Historical Museum with a special, expanded Jackson 5 exhibit that opens that day. Jackson 5 were on the Motown label from 1968-75.
Some of the items on display at the museum, known to fans as Hitsville and located at 2648 W. Grand Blvd., include uniforms the Jackson 5 wore onstage, photographs, awards, a Michael Jackson doll, clips of the Jackson 5 cartoon series, as well as a uniform Michael Jackson wore early in his solo career. Jackson donated the uniform to the museum in 1988 when he was in Detroit on a tour stop. He also donated his hat and the famous, single rhinestone-encrusted glove (stolen once, and now in a highly secure exhibit).
The Jackson 5 exhibit runs Friday through Sept. 30. General admission is $10 for adults, $8 for children 12 and under and senior citizens. Summer hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
