Created and hosted by Don Cornelius, Soul Train began airing in 1971, bringing Black culture to television with singing, dancing, and music. Soul Train was one of the longest-running shows on television, running from 1971 until 2006. Soul Train featured many Black artists performing hip-hop, R&B, pop, disco, soul, funk, jazz, and even gospel.
