Late Great Actress “Lena Horne” Makes History On Broadway!

A theater on Broadway has been officially renamed in honor of the late actress and civil rights activist Lena Horne.

Horne is the first Black woman to have a theater named in her honor.

The theater, on West 47th Street, was built in 1926 and was originally named the Mansfield Theatre. In 1960, it was renamed the Brooks Atkinson Theatre in honor of the late New York Times drama critic.
