Amateur Night is White

The Apollo Theater held their Amateur Night Top Dog Semi finals on Wednesday October 20th hosted by Comedian Capone.

Like any other Apollo night, the audience cheered on the amazing talent, and like any other Apollo night no one booed the gospel songs. Maybe it just isn’t right?

Upon arrival we saw a few specs of white people in attendance. I figured they were all in a group together, observing what the Apollo really was, but as the night progressed and we looked around, it was more obvious that the majority of the Apollo audience was white. I’d estimate that about 75% of the people were not of color, maybe even more.

Harlem has been changing up a lot over the past few years but it’s never been more visible than last night at the Apollo. At first glance, anyone would have been shocked.

Needless to say that this is good news. We can all enjoy great music and amazing talent.
