Can a song change a nation? In 1964, Marvin Gaye, record producer William "Mickey" Stevenson, and Motown songwriter Ivy Jo Hunter wrote "Dancing in the Street." Recorded at Motown's Hitsville USA studio by Martha and the Vandellas, it was intended as an upbeat dance recording. But this was the summer of 1964-the Mississippi Freedom Summer, the Berkeley Free Speech Movement, the beginning of the Vietnam War, the passage of the Civil Rights Act, and the lead-up to a dramatic election. As the country grew more radicalized, "Dancing in the Street" gained currency as an activist anthem, taking on multiple meanings for many different groups, which were all altered as the country changed.

Ready for a Brand New Beat chronicles that extraordinary summer of 1964 and showcases the momentous role that a simple song played in history, one that would become an anthem of American pop culture
