On this day in 1939, Marian Anderson sang a landmark 1939
concert at the Lincoln Memorial, and blazed a trail for other
black classical singers.

More than 75,000 people come to the Lincoln Memorial on that
Easter Sunday to hear Anderson. She had been scheduled to
sing at Washington’s Constitution Hall, but the Daughters of
the American Revolution, a political organization that helped
manage the concert hall, denied her the right to perform
because of her race. Instead, and at the urging of Eleanor
Roosevelt who had resigned the DAR in protest of their
decision, Marian performed a free open air-concert at the
Lincoln Memorial.
