Back then, it was known as the “Apollo Theatre of the South” and was named as a tribute to the first ever African-American warrior- Crispus Attucks in the Revolutionary War. Ever since it was established, the Attucks Theatre has been home to various performers and has been nothing but a source of pure entertainment for the masses.
