Slave One, Institute of African Heritage

Slave One, Institute of African Heritage Slave One: Institute for African Heritage aims to serve Bedford Stuyvesant and all other boroughs of New York City as a cultural arts center.

History The Slave Theatre was first acquired by Judge John L. Phillips Jr. in 1984. Judge Phillips acquired the then Regent Theatre and renamed it The Slave Theatre as a reminder of the oppressive plight Blacks endured in the beginning of their history in this country. During the mid 80’s through the late 90’s, The Slave Theatre served as major political and cultural hub for activists and artists alike. At the turn of the century, The Slave Theatre experienced a decline in major resources and began to focus it’s programming on preservation. The Slave Theater was recently renamed Slave One: Institute for African Heritage in Fall 2014. Mission Statement Slave One: Institute for African Heritage aims to serve Bedford Stuyvesant and all other boroughs of New York City as a cultural arts center. Our programming focuses on works that illuminate and reflect the vast experiences of the African Diaspora. What's Next? Slave One: Institute for African Heritage is in the midst of launching a national fundraising campaign to open its doors to begin major renovations. The goal is to equip Slave One with multiple spaces that accommodate film, theatre performances, fine art and commercial office spaces.

Brooklyn Developer’s No Good Deed

A local developer takes its current fraudulent deed for Brooklyn’s iconic Slave One Theater – a deed transferred into a dead man’s name in 2011

– to new lows last year, by submitting a “correction” deed fraudulently signed by defunct court-appointed administrator, Reverend Samuel Boykins.

On August 17, 2015, The Fulton Halsey Development Group LLC, submitted a “correction” deed, to the NYC Department of Finance Office of the City Register, signed by Boykins despite the fact that his letters of administration to act on behalf of John L. Phillips’ estate were revoked

John L. Phillips Jr. was born in 1924 on the 10th day of April-- he would've been 91 today... HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mr. Phillips🎉🎈
