Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton announced that the mural will be placed on the wall behind the Kennedy Park fountain (300 Main Street). The wall is currently dressed with a Main Street mural by local artist Joe DiGuiseppi.
One of Marian Anderson's most famous performances was on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Easter Sunday, April 9, 1939 to 75,000 people and millions more via radio. This performance was arranged by Eleanor Roosevelt after the Daughters of the American Revolution refused to allow Ms. Anderson to sing to an integrated audience in Constitution Hall because of her race.
Marian Anderson and her husband Orpheus H. Fisher owned a 100-acre farm in Danbury. Marian Anderson served on the board of the Danbury Music Centre and the DMC's recital hall is named after her. Marian Anderson was a large supporter of the arts in our community, as well as a supporter of the Danbury Chapter of the NAACP.
