Little Known Black History Fact: Black is Beautiful

Comments: 5  | Leave A Comment

One of the main illustrations of the Black is Beautiful movement was the Don Cornelius’ 1969 creation of Soul Train. With a full African American cast of dancers and advertisers targeting the Black is Beautiful movement, Soul Train was the first and largest outreach to the black community that glamorized the physical diversities of Black America. The legacy lasted for three decades on television.

For more information on the Black is Beautiful movement, as told by Dr. Henry Louis Skip Gates on the compelling PBS series “Many Rivers to Cross”, click here.
