Don Cornelius Dies At 75; Apparent Suicide

The beloved creator of, Soul Train has reportedly died. Cornelius was found dead 4am in his Sherman Oaks home of what seems to be a self inflicted gun shot wound to the head. He was 75.

Don was such a staple in Black History. Soul Train brought loved ones together and introduced us to great music and entertainers. The show spanned decades, running from 1971 to 2006. He had been battling Cancer for some time, it's very sad. RIP Don Cornelius.
