The Colfax Hoodie

The Colfax Hoodie


Between its opening in 1928 and demolition in 1991, The Colfax Theater was a cultural hive for downtown South Bend.

But not unlike many establishments of the day, black residents’ freedom to engage in the Colfax’s cultural life was limited, with one man describing his experience sitting in the far-up buzzard’s roost as “hardly worth a person’s time.”

Today, we deliver our portrait of The Colfax Theater and ask: will the shaping of our city’s culture be reserved to a select few, while the rest find it “hardly worth a person’s time”? Or will our culture be a mirror—reflecting the capacious range of talent, experience, and heritage inhabiting our neighborhoods?
