Overview

Going Up North: Before the Temptations from Birmingham to Humanity by Joe Selma

This book is about life before the Temptations and the dreams of some very young high school music students who didn't have many choices in life, but one choice was music. I was one of these students at Western - Olin High School (Renamed Jackson - Olin) in Birmingham, Alabama. In the early 1950's. We were poor with little or no chance of fulfilling our dreams at that time in the south. But one music teacher, Mr. Amos F. Gordon told us we could achieve our dreams if we were willing to work hard and stay focused on our dreams. Eddie Kendrick and Paul Williams were among these students and so was I. This is my life growing up with so many very talented schoolmates who all had the dreams of one day making our dreams come true.
