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.
