The Howard Theatre

620 T St NW, Washington, D.C.
Founded in 1901, the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C., was the first concert hall in the country that catered exclusively to Black artists and audiences. The newly renovated grand stage was once the playground for musical greats Duke Ellington, Ray Charles, the Supremes and many others.
