Soul Train was one of the longest-running, first-run, nationally syndicated programs in American television history. Created by African American music pioneer Don Cornelius, the show began its run on Chicago’s WCIU-TV in 1970 and quickly became a huge success, expanding to a national broadcast in 1971 with Cornelius as executive producer, writer, and host. Known for his deep voice, stylish suits, and plenty of charm, Cornelius was the ideal host. He left Soul Train in 1993 and passed away in 2012. He will be remembered for his commitment to African American performers and as a pop culture icon for years to come.
