Before the Apollo, before the Regal, before the Royal there was theHoward Theatre. At its inception, it was the "largest colored theatre in theworld." Sadly shuttered and neglected since the 1980's, the once majestic building with its “trunk of soul” has survived death in order to be reborn intime to celebrate its Ribbon Cutting at 1pm on April 9, 2012, at 620 T St., NW, Washington, DC, 20001-5117 and its 101st anniversary at 6:30pm onApril, 12, 2012 at its Grand Opening Gala Benefit Concert.The Howard Theatre Restoration, Inc and its Community Committeeis leading a collaborative effort with the District of Columbia and other  private entities to bring the life of music and the people back to the HowardTheatre.The Committee is looking for memorabilia, such as historical posters, pictures, programs, ticket stubs, etc. that you may have saved from your experience at the Howard Theatre. These items may be used for the openingdisplay at the ribbon cutting and opening event in April.
