“Soul Train”

Aired: October 1971-March 2006

The funkier, more soulful twin to “American Bandstand” Black America finally had a music show that welcomed sky high afros, bell bottom slacks and platform shoes.  Don Cornelius, a journalist who was active in the Civil Rights movement, brainstormed the idea for a music show where soul music could take center stage. The salutation “Love, peace, and soul” Train has been cemented in our cultural lexicon.
