DC Native Linda Lou McCall Submits to the Real Thing

DC native and music maven Linda Lou McCall has been given a call to duty.  As a special request by the Smithsonian Institute, a piece of history that she has had in her possession for almost 40 years, will now be part of an exhibit within the National Museum of African-American History & Culture.

Mrs. McCall, who is the widow of the band ConFunkShun’s co-founder/drummer, Louis A. McCall, has submitted her piece of history to a multi-media exhibition entited “Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing: How the Apollo Theater Shaped American Entertainment” – and exhibit celebrating the 75th anniversary of Harlem’s Apollo Theater.

The picture submitted is one that was of the Delfonics, taken in 1972 during a time where she and two friends, Carolyn A. Wyatt and Iris Wyatt, traveled with the group as photographers after first meeting them 1969 at Washington, DC’s Howard Theater.
