The fate of the Slave Theater at 1215 Fulton Street in Bed Stuy is still up in the air. An auction of the building that once housed the famed Afrocentric cultural institution was expected to take place today but has not been scheduled. It is not clear if an auction will be set for next month or at all. No word on whether building owner Rev. Samuel Boykin is in contract or sold the building, though in August several potential buyers were reported to be interested. The New Brooklyn Theater did not reach its goal of raising $200,000 through Kickstarter, but may still be able to raise some funds directly to try to buy the building, if it is still available. “Due to the hurricane, I have been told that the entire process may get pushed back because of availability from the Department of Buildings who is going to be helping with Sandy related issues,” said New Brooklyn Theater Executive Producer Sarah Wolff.
