From the Chestertown Spy:
The Prince Theatre, known as the Lyceum during much of the 20th Century, has had a painful history of racial segregation. It is remembered — first-hand by many older residents in local black communities, and in accounts passed on to younger ones – for requiring them to sit only in the upper balcony and for banning them from seats on the first floor, for most of its existence.
No more. The Prince is, as it has been now for decades, open for everyone of every hue. And yet, as any regular patron of events there could and did observe, it has not become a place where very many people of color are comfortable. Some reaching out seemed in order.
