The Jackson 5 Promo Print
The Jackson 5 changed the music business. Brought up under the wing of Diana Ross in the Motown family, they were the first black teen idols to appeal to both black and white audiences. The quintet reached mass pop appeal with catchy pop tunes, flashy fashion, and trend-setting dance moves. For many, this was a backlash to the folk movement - a glittery, delightful new presence in the mainstream of pop culture.
