Today on this first day of Black History Month we mourn the loss of the legendary Don Cornelius. According to MSN.com he was found dead in his home with a gun shot wound to the head. Apparently it was self-inflicted. He was 75.
Cornelius was the first host and executive produces of the syndicated show Soul Train from 1971 to March 2006.
Prayers and condolense go out to his family. May his soul rest in peace.
