Mary Wilson grew up in Detroits gritty Brewster housing projects. But thanks to the rough honey of her voice, she escaped her humble beginnings. Wilson went on to become an original member of the Supremes -- the Motown group that inspired a legion of imitators, from the Bangles to Destinys Child -- ensuring her a place in music history. This Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee will share her amazing life story with students and fans as part of Miami Dade Colleges Black History Month celebrations. Her speech, titled Dare to Dream, recalls memories from her musical heyday when she sang Where Did Our Love Go? and Love Child. She will also talk about her best-selling book Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme and discuss achieving her mothers dream: to have one of her children graduate from college. Hear the wise words of a Motown legend this morning at 11:30 in the McCarthy Theater, Room 6120. Admission is free. Call 305-237-3710, or visit www.mdc.edu.
