2009 Kresge Eminent Artist Marcus Belgrave talks about his lifelong love of the trumpet and the burgeoning music scene he found when he moved to Detroit in the early 1960s. The Eminent Artist recognizes an exceptional artist for professional achievements and contributions to the cultural community. The award also encourages that individual’s pursuit of a chosen art form and an ongoing commitment to metropolitan Detroit. (Videographer: Stephen McGee)
