The iconic Right On! Magazine appears on BET’s “American Soul,” which is a 10-part series chronicling the life and times of Don Cornelius, founder and host of Soul Train. The magazine is featured in a storyline in episode 106 entitled “What Are You Looking At?” which aired March 5, 2019.


According to Right On! Digital CEO Cynthia Horner, the publication is used in scenes where a Right On! Magazine ¬†reporter Jean Jones (Chrystee Pharris) attempts to convince a distracted Don Cornelius (Sinqua Walls) to complete an interview with Right On! in a timely fashion or he can “kiss the cover goodbye.” In the hilarious scenes the two are joined by Little Richard (Wayne Brady) who needs his wardrobe and bling in order to appear on a Soul Train taping.

“It’s comical and fun,” states Horner. ¬†“And it will bring back memories.”
