Dr. Boyce: Five Things Black People Learned from Don Cornelius
Like the rest of America, I was distraught over the death of the great Don Cornelius, creator of the legendary show, “Soul Train.” There will never be another one like him, for he truly changed the black entertainment landscape for all eternity. I thought about Cornelius for a bit this morning and wanted to share five things that black people can learn from the master of soul:
1) How to start and build a business: Soul Train was not a show that some big corporation gave to Don Cornelius. It was his baby. Don started off in Chicago with a hot local show and eventually took the show to national syndication. He saw a void in entertainment and filled it. He carried his dream to the national level and now his vision remains a perpetual piece of black entertainment history. Most of us have dreams, but most of those dreams die. Find your dream, learn how to create your dream and then put your heart into building that dream. You’ll be amazed at what you can do.
