To celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Soul Train, the Paley Center is screening five exemplary episodes of the influential series the last week of January and throughout February. In these programs you will see why Soul Train provided to the nation the latest trends in music, dance, and fashion, as well as why the host Don Cornelius became a television icon. The screenings occur Wednesdays to Sundays at 2:00 pm. We wish to thank Anthony Maddox and Donna Schaffer of Soul Train Holdings for making these screenings possible.
