Though Soul Train is known for ushering in generations of Black musicians, its most notable component was the infamous “Soul Train Line,” where dancers would strut down a human-bordered pathway, showcasing their best grooves.
The Soul Train Line, introduced in the 1970s, far surpassed its popularity in syndication, becoming a staple piece in Black culture. Often replicated at weddings, birthday parties and cookouts, the Soul Train Line is a motif in almost every social function.
Here are five “Soul Train Lines” for your entertainment:
1. SOUL TRAIN DANCERS (TO THE O’JAYS’ “LOVE TRAIN”)
2. FAMILY AND FRIENDS AT WEDDING RECEPTION
3. SENIOR CITIZENS AT UNIVERSOUL CIRCUS
5. CAST OF “THIS CHRISTMAS” (2007)
