WHAT BECOMES?

A lot happened in 1965. The first ever Tamla-Motown tour came to the UK and brought the Northern Soul movement into the mainstream. It was also the year the UK created the Race Relations Act which prohibited discrimination against someone on the grounds of race. Jane also met Tracy in a small village in West Yorkshire, and they have to figure out if they can love each other across the boundary of Race. 50 years later at the Northern Soul championships in Blackbool their grandchildren have a second choice to right their wrong, but, has much changed?
