About the Lincoln:

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Lincoln Theater hosted a multitude of legendary entertainers and Civil Rights activists since it started welcoming patrons in the 1950s. Renowned artists like Louis Armstrong, James Brown and Otis Redding performed in the auditorium and even Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. probably visited the site in the early 1950s for a meeting with Baton Rouge Bus Boycott community strategists, including Reverend T.J. Jemison.
