Wiki.

The Lincoln Memorial Concert is a 1939 documentary film about a concert performance by African American opera singer Marian Anderson, who was barred from singing in Washington D.C.'s Constitution Hall because she was black. She wasn't allowed to perform in the auditorium of a white public high school in the District of Columbia. The concert was held on federal property. 75,000 people attended the Easter Sunday performance in 1939. The film was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress.
