Black has always been beautiful. But it took 1971’s music program Soul Train, created by Don Cornelius, to open the eyes to Americans nationwide that the beauty of “blackness” came in all shades of color and sizes.
Black people had long accepted the skin they were in, but through “Soul Train” they could show the world the uniqueness, beauty, and pride that came with being black men and black women.
YES we as Black people had long accepted the skin that we were in
I can remember my Saturday get togethers with my bros to ogle the soul train dancers.
Yes and sadly, those days seem to have been forgotten.
I remember those days so vividly!?? All the family gathering even driving from outta town for the weekend just for all of us to be together! We were so close! #Love and loyalty#?
