Crowds wait outside to come in and get a tour of the newly renovated Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. on Monday, April 9, 2012. The theater, which originally opened in 1910, was one of the first places African-Americans could see live musical acts. Performers such as Duke Ellington, Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross all played here. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
