The Lincoln Theatre Columbus was originally opened in 1928 as the Ogden Theatre and Ballroom. It was meant to be an entertainment
hub in the black community, which until then had not had as many places to go as the whites in the area. Oral history has
it that owners James Albert "Al" Jackson and James "Ernie" Williams opened the theater after the nearby Vernon Theater was
changed to a white's only venue. Today, the theater is historically important to the black community, and serves anyone looking
for an entertaining evening.
The Lincoln Theatre has a surprisingly eclectic events calendar. In a typical month, you might find concerts by young,
