May You Finally Rest In Peace Soul Brother #1 - Don Cornelius

 Donald Cortez "Don" Cornelius 
(September 27, 1936 – February 1, 2012)

On Saturday mornings we would turned on the TV & watch Soul Train as we cleaned. We learned the new dances, laughed at the outfits and never missed the Soul Train line.


We got to see African American performers we wouldn't see otherwise on TV. We were introduced to & inundated by all the products for our skin & hair....things that otherwise we'd never hear of... Soul Train taught us how to have a good time at parties. After all, who has never done the bus stop or made a soul train line?

No matter what was going on in our lives, we made time for the program that made time for us. Don was so cool...he made us proud. He'll be missed but never forgotten. :/
