Love, Peace and Soul

Those of us growing up in the Chicago area have fond memories of the Saturday TV dance program, Soul Train.  It's creator, Don Cornelius, died today.

NPR reporter Sami Yenigun remembers Cornelius and reminds us how influential this series was in many of our lives.  Listen to his tribute here and find links to more NPR coverage.

The Urbana Free Library owns the complete DVD set The Best of Soul Train. Check it out and dance along with Don , the kids, and the many guests who were showcased every week. Can't wait for your turn? Here's a taste of the fun.

 Peace, Love, and Soul!
