ImageNation's Soul Train night in Harlem (SLIDE SHOW)

Arts nonprofit ImageNation turned back the clock for its outdoor screening of the doc Soul Train: The Hippest Trip in America. Commemorating the '70s program's founder, Don Cornellius, the event set out to break the Guinness World Record for longest Soul Train line—211, set by a high school in Berkeley, California, last year. (Since then, Philadelphia had made a claim on the record, with 327 people). The Harlem event surpassed both, drawing 357 groovy participants to boogie down in Marcus Garvey Park.
