The History of the Apollo Theater and Its Influence on American Culture

1213 Girard Street, NW, Washington, DC 20009

Tel: 202-239-8450

We are very pleased to present Dr. Tuliza Fleming of the National Museum of African American History and Culture as she discusses her ground-breaking work on the history and impact of the Apollo Theater on American popular culture. Tuliza, as she is affectionately known, provides us with the definitive chronicalling of the 75 year transformation of American popular entertainment by co-curating the material culture of an institution which occupied the physical space of Harlem, but the psychic space of America. Indeed, Dr. Fleming’s book bearing the title "Ain’t Nothin’ Like The Real Thing: How The Apollo Theater Shaped American Entertainment" has recalibrated the thinking of many scholars, including her co-curator Dr. Edmund Guthrie of University of Pennsylvania, who credits Tuliza with widening his thinking about African American history.

We at Millennium Arts Salon invite your own "…advance in cultural literacy" by attending this most important Salon with one of our own.

Artfully yours,

The Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers of
