In 1977, the Women’s Movement scored a major victory with Roe v. Wade, but Congress failed to pass the Equal Rights Amendment.

In this audio documentary, Britt Aamodt examines one of Minnesota’s most significant heroes in women’s history. Featuring Lori Sturdevant, author of “Her Honor: Rosalie Wahl & the Minnesota Women’s Movement,” and Betty Wilson, author of “Rudy! The People’s Governor.”

Sometimes what you planned as a one-time event becomes something much more.

Abdul “Duke” Fakir, Levi Stubbs, Lawrence Payton and Renaldo “Obie” Benson sang together at a friend’s birthday party for the first time in 1954. They enjoyed it so much that they decided that night to start a group, first named “The Four Aims” and later changed to the “Four Tops”.

The Four Tops helped shaped the sound of Motown and brought joy to the hearts of many with songs like “Sugar Pie Honey Bunch”, and “Reach Out I’ll Be There”.

On February 23rd, one of the group’s founding members, Abdul Fakir, was honored with the Living Legend award by St. Peter’s AME Church in South Minneapolis.

KFAI’s Jumondeh Tweh was there, and he talked with “Duke” Fakir about the group’s great history and classic songs.
