Today in 1939 Marian Anderson performed on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC. Originally she was to perform at Howard University. After realizing that the crowd would be too large, they turned to the Daughters of the American Revolution and requested that she sing at Constitution Hall. They declined, stating their racially segregated “white-only” performer policy. Seventy-five thousand people were in attendance for Anderson’s performance at the memorial.

Take a look at the National Archives Today’s Document tumblr for more about Anderson, including an audio clip of her performance and the letter from Eleanor Roosevelt to the Daughters of the American Revolution resigning in protest of their decision not to let Anderson perform at Constitution Hall.

Unfortunately, as is the case with many of Henderson’s photos, there is no further information associated with the images of Anderson and an unidentified woman.

White women are the only group of women who will take “basic bitch” as a compliment, and write nonsensical articles like the one above. (x)

Garifuna: The Young Black Latino Exodus You’ve Never Heard About

Honduran migrants passing through Mexico often carry only the bare essentials: cash, some clothes and a cell phone, if they can afford one.
Gustavo Morales stands out among the migrant population here in Tequixquiac, a hot, dusty little town right outside Mexico City. The 21-year-old is traveling with an African drum that he plays during his downtime along the journey.
The drum isn’t the only reason he stands out. He’s a black migrant in a country where few people are of African descent.
Mexico is somewhat accustomed to Central American migrants, who have come in large numbers in recent years. But the mass exodus from Honduras - where people are fleeing catastrophic violence and poverty - has brought a new type of migrant, the Garifuna, an ethnically Afro-Caribbean population.
The black migrants come from the eastern shorelines of Central America and are heading to the U.S., often to New Orleans and New York.
