There is a short article about the new Booker T Theatre on page 48 of the Modern Theatre section of Boxoffice, issue of March 4, 1950. Architect Ted Rogvoy drew the plans for the conversion of a former garage into a 1000 seat theater including a stage for live performances. It was the first new theater intended to serve black audiences to be opened in Detroit in a dozen years.
