DeMorning Links: A farewell to Chuck


Wind us up, one more time. (Marvin Joseph - The Washington Post)

I might have “jumped the gun,” but I wasn’t wrong: Our civic farewell to Chuck Brown gets underway Tuesday with a public viewing at the Howard Theatre, on Chuck Brown Way (aka the 600 block of T Street), from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. His grand sendoff will continue Thursday at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center at noon for a scheduled three-hour memorial service. Hamil Harris has more details over at The Root DC. He speaks to Howard Theatre developer Chip Ellis, who lamented Brown never played in his gleaming new space: “God had another plan.”
