Go back in time tonight to an era that brought us “soul” at Harlem’s Marcus Garvey Park. Harlem-based non-profit ImageNation is celebrating all things “Soul Train” this evening (July 12) in Marcus Garvey Park. ImageNation’s 10th Annual Outdoors Festival will pay tribute to the late Don Cornelius with a screening of the VH1 documentary “Soul Train: The Hippest Trip in America,” as well as live performances of music from that famous era. Also, ImageNation is aiming to create the largest soul train line tonight here in Harlem. How else to pay better tribute to the man himself, Don Cornelius, than by creating one of the most famous and well-known dance lines: the soul train line? The event is FREE and starts at 7:30 pm. Check out the details below.

Peace: I had a great time, I joined the Siul Train Line with my Rollerskates on. I was the one with the Red, Blackq N Green skirt. I would like to see some pictures as well. Peace
I was at work couldn’t make it! Please don’t let this be the only/last time !
So far I have not been able to track down any photos or videos. I have also reached out to the organization that put the event together to see if they had photos and have not heard back from them. Unfortunately, I could not make it either. Hopefully there will be another Soul Train event in Harlem. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
