APOLLO THEATER ARCHIVE PROJECT

The Apollo Theater has begun to establish an archive that will document the history and ongoing activities of Harlem's legendary Apollo Theater. Through this project, a unique collection of photographs, oral histories, videotapes, institutional documents, printed materials, and memorabilia will be identified, surveyed, collected, inventoried, preserved, and maintained for future generations. A system for the long-term care and continuous collection of archival materials will be established together with a means for sharing the collection with the public.
