This week, Dr. Alfiee meets TV Producer and mental health advocate Tony Cornelius, creator of the hit BET show “American Soul", which like our episode 9, premieres this week. American Soul chronicles the story behind his father Don Cornelius’s iconic TV music and dance show, "Soul Train" which became one of the longest-running syndicated programs in American television history. Tony is a gifted storyteller and charismatic advocate for suicide prevention in diverse communities. He began this work after the tragic loss of his famous father Don who died by suicide in 2012. Channeling his grief, Tony launched the Don Cornelius Foundation and joined the board of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, both of which advocate for mental health well-being, suicide awareness and prevention.
