Pop culture writer Ericka Blount Danois' book about "Soul Train" makes you want to grab a bowl of ice cream and cookies (or yogurt and fruit considering the book's generation's age), call up an old friend and have a long, bounding conversation about the good old times and the beauty of youth.
Entitled "Love, Peace, and SOUL: Behind The Scenes Of America's Favorite Dance Show –Soul Train: Classic Moments," Danois' naturally flowing style brings all the beauty, fun, love, drama and tears of a family reunion without the messy cleanup. A must have for African-American homes and anyone interested in African-American culture.
Baby Boomers beware. Trying to recreate the dance moves that electrified America when "Soul Train" boomed across the nation could be hazardous to your health.
