Summary:
In 1939 the great contralto Marian Anderson was denied the right to perform at Washington's Constitution Hall because of the color of her skin. The snub gave rise to an outpouring of support and activism that drew attention to the racial inequities in the nation's capital and throughout the country. Ms. Anderson's Easter Day concert is remembered as a historic milestone in the pre-Civil Rights era and inspired future leaders, including Martin Luther King.
