Beverly Hills resident Karla Gordy Bristol spearheaded the Berry Gordy Square Dedication Ceremony and sign unveiling at the northwest corner of Sunset Boulevard and Argyle Avenue in Hollywood on Nov. 25. The location is where her uncle, the legendary Berry Gordy, operated Motown Records after moving the company from Detroit. “It was my true joy and pleasure to initiate this honor for my uncle. A monumental honor for him in Los Angeles, this has been my desire for several years. The former Motown Records location was my first choice,” Gordy Bristol told the Courier. She added, “I’m grateful to Najee Ali for listening to my desires and taking action…straight to Los Angeles City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, who said yes immediately.”
