    Age 89
    He died in Los Angeles, California on December 18, 2000 at age 90, a week after attending the groundbreaking ceremonies for the Performing Arts Center named for Los Angeles politician Nate Holden which was built on the site where the Ebony Showcase stood.
    More Details Hide Details The entire complex that had housed the Ebony Showcase organization, including a house not shown in the picture, was taken in eminent domain by the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency. The theater edifice was demolished in 1998, the rest of the complex was demolished, building-by-building. Redevelopment and its abuses were abolished by Governor Jerry Brown and the California State Supreme Court and officially ended in 2012, too late to save their buildings. Contrary to propaganda on the internet and elsewhere, the Ebony Showcase has absolutely no affiliation with the City-owned Nate Holden Performing Arts Center, nor with the Ebony Repertory Theater that is housed there. They are often confused with the Ebony Showcase because their theater was built where the buildings once stood. Although the theater buildings were taken in eminent domain and demolished in 1998 by the Community Redevelopment Agency which claimed that the buildings suffered extensive earthquake damage, the Ebony Showcase transformed, adapted, and did not close. Instead, The Ebony Showcase continues to provide entertainment, resources, and charitable services on the internet and in the community.

He and his wife, Edna Stewart, also founded Los Angeles's Ebony Showcase Theatre, which provided a venue for numerous performers of all races, including Al Freeman, Jr., Yuki Shimoda, William Schallert, Tom Ewell, John Amos, Nichelle Nichols, Isabel Sanford, B. B. King, Phil Collins, Eartha Kitt, Gladys Knight and Chaka Khan. Founded in 1950, and first located on Washington Boulevard and Western Avenue, then on Crenshaw Boulevard, afterward on Adams Boulevard and later on Washington boulevard in Los Angeles, Stewart filled the seats with quality productions. The couple did all remodeling of the building themselves, with the help of salvaged lumber from the CBS Television City construction site.
