About this Item

9 x 6-1/2 inches, matted, in glass fronted frame. Signed and inscribed by Anderson to Mr. H. Waringa. Marian Anderson (1897-1993) was an American contralto and one of the most celebrated singers of the twentieth century. Although she was offered contracts to perform roles with many important European opera companies, Anderson declined all of these, preferring to perform in concert and recital only. An African-American, Anderson became an important figure in the struggle for black artists to overcome racial prejudice in the United States during the mid twentieth century. In 1939, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) refused permission for Anderson to sing to an integrated audience in Constitution Hall. With the aid of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Anderson performed a critically acclaimed open-air concert on Easter Sunday, 1939 on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. to a crowd of more than 75,000 people and a radio audience in the millions. As an indication of how times can change, during the festivities of the inauguration of President Barak Obama, there were demonstrations on the steps of the DAR's Constitution Hall with people hoding up the photo of Marian Anderson!.
