Four people sustained minor injuries at a party on Saturday night, when the floor of Fulton Street’s Slave Theater collapsed, according to the New York Post.
The victims fell ten feet into the cellar around 10:30 p.m., says the Post.
Last month, it was reported that the owner of the Slave Theater wanted to boot out alleged squatters and turn the famed civil rights space into a church. But the tenants, like Messengers for Christ World Healing Center, insist that they have been paying rent for years.
The Slave Theatre was purchased in 1982 by Bedford-Stuyvesant resident and judge, John Phillips, originally as a place to screen films. Soon it like Reverend Al Sharpton.
