RIP, Don Cornelius: Video of the Host From 1970
If you watched weekend morning TV in the 1970s and 1980s, there's a good chance you caught plenty of Don Cornelius and "Soul Train" (above, watch Cornelius introducing the Soul Train dancers, getting down to "Jungle Boogie"). Sad news today: It appears Cornelius, who had been suffering from health issues, committed suicide this morning in Los Angeles.
Below, an excerpt of Don Cornelius in 1970 hosting "Black's View of the News" on WCIU Channel 26 in Chicago.
