NEW YORK, June 13, 2012 -- The life, career and legend of television pioneer Don Cornelius is brought to life in his own words in a one-hour special dedicated to telling the story behind the man by the man himself in DON CORNELIUS: VISIONARY, TRAILBLAZER, & CULTURAL ICON premiering Saturday, June 23rd at 11:00 P.M./8:00 P.M.

Homes across America would never be the same as Don Cornelius stepped into their living rooms weekly with his velvety smooth and cool baritone voice changing the future of African-American entertainment, and music television as a whole, for generations to come.

From the innovative Soul Train Line, exclusive live performances by The Jackson Five, James Brown, Donna Summer, Stevie Wonder, and many more music legends, from breaking fashion trends, to cutting-edge dance moves, we will hear Don's deep, resonating voice take us once more, on the hippest trip in America.

Featuring interviews by Gladys Knight, Anita Baker, Quest Love, Kool and the Gang, Eddie Levert, Missy Elliott, DON CORNELIUS: VISIONARY, TRAILBLAZER, & CULTURAL ICON, will not only look at the man in front of the camera, but the father, businessman, entrepreneur and innovator that was Don Cornelius.
