This undated handout photo provided by the National Museum of American History shows a Shantung silk jacket, redesigned in 1993, and black velvet skirt worn by Marian Anderson during her historic performance on the Lincoln Memorial in Washington in 1939. For the first time, Anderson’s orange-and-black blouse and skirt ensemble that she wore during her historic performance on the Lincoln Memorial steps 75 years ago will go on display at the Smithsonian. Anderson was a groundbreaking opera singer but was kept out of Washington’s Constitution Hall because she was black, and Eleanor Roosevelt invited her to perform at the Lincoln Memorial instead. The concert attire is part of a collection being donated to the National Museum of African American History and Culture by a member of Anderson’s extended family to mark the anniversary of Anderson’s concert on Wednesday. It will be displayed beginning Tuesday and will remain on view until September. (AP Photo/Hugh Talman)
