During the month of September, #FlashbackFriday will feature past Spirit of America seasons. Today we go back to the beginning of Spirit of America with the 1971 inaugural performance.

It was not only the first season of Spirit of America, but the first performance to be held in the Norfolk (VA) SCOPE Coliseum. Performances were presented November 12-14. The Saturday and Sunday performances saw television personalities Steve Allen and Soupy Sales serve as masters of ceremonies.
