Bidding Farewell

The broadcaster would step down as host of Soul Train in 1993. His later years would be tumultuous, including in 2009, when he was sentenced to three years’ probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor spousal battery. In his divorce proceedings that year, he also admitted to suffering from significant health issues. (Photo: Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)
