Author presentation and book-signing featuring award-winning journalist, writer, editor, and professor, Ericka Blount Danois and her latest book, Love, Peace, and Soul - Behind the Scenes of America’s Top Dance Show SOUL TRAIN: Classic Moments.

Love, Peace, and Soul tells the story of the television phenomenon known as Soul Train, a show created by Don Cornelius in the land of bell bottoms, afros, and soul power.  The book is a celebratory, behind-the-scenes collection of anecdotes, stories, and reflections from the people who were there.  The legendary show became the longest running first-run syndicated program in television history.

Ericka will share some great stories that most people have never heard and will also moderate a special guest panel featuring music artist, Keith Washington, former Soul Train dancer, Lorenzo Colston and others.


Books will be available for sale at the event.  Free parking is available in the employee lot on Putnam between Cass and Woodward.  Metered parking on street.
