YouTube Treasure: Diana Ross's Legendary African Dance Number
Motown legend Diana Ross delved into her roots in the 1968 TV special called TCB in which, after a few haunting bars of "Reflections," she emerged in boldly patterned prints, with bushy hair and hoop earrings, looking skinner than someone from a Sally Struthers commercial.

Amazing stuff, preceded by a few strains of "Reflections of the way life used to be..."
The best costume is at the 2:02 mark.
Totally Cool, Babe.
