![An African American singer, Marian Anderson found more success
and fame in Europe than America until in 1939 the DAR (Daughters of the American
Revolution) refused to allow her to sing in their Constitution Hall in
Washington, DC. In part because of the public attention brought by this
incident, Marian Anderson became one of the best-known African American women of
the 20th century.](http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z17/CNDY29/image7.jpg)
