soul train

Several items from the iconic dance show “Soul Train” will be added to the collection of the Smithsonian as part of the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The Root reports:

The five donations include the 10- foot-long neon “Train” sign, which was used from 1993 to 2006 and neon signs from the program’s music awards show, used in 2006 and 2007.

The acquisitions will be formally announced June 30 at a special panel discussion and dance party, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. This year’s festival will focus on the culture of Colombia, the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps and Rhythm and Blues music.
