Lincoln Theatre information
The historic Lincoln Theatre was an early cornerstone of the nation's African American renaissance when it was founded in 1922. Luminaries such as DC native Duke Ellington as well as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn and many others have all lit up the stage here. Following the 1968 assassination of Dr Martin Luther King Jr, riots devastated the commercial district. This area has since undergone a second renaissance; there are lots of excellent restaurants and bars around.
