In 1939, classical singer Marian Anderson stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., and gave a concert to an audience of 75,000 people. Just a few days before, The Daughters of the American Revolution turned Ms. Anderson away from performing a concert in Constitution Hall because because they only allowed white artists to perform there. This artwork by Utah artist Carlos Anderson shows Marian Anderson performing as a crowd of people are drawn to her singing. Many who come to hear Anderson are playing musical instruments; one man in the bottom right has shackles on his wrists; Marian Anderson’s voice echoes through the US, from an amber field to a bustling New York cityscape as Abraham Lincoln’s marble memorial looks on.
