Soul Train: Remembering entertainment pioneer Don Cornelius

Don Cornelius, the smooth-voiced television host who brought black music and culture into America’s living rooms when he created the dance show “Soul Train,” was found dead at age 75 from an apparent suicide early Wednesday morning. The beloved host used to sign off the “Soul Train” show he founded by wishing his audiences “love, peace and soul,” and devoted every programming minute to proving he meant it. In 2008, he was arrested for felony domestic violence against Russian model Victoria Avila-Cornelius who is his second wife.
