A Very Special Holiday with Marian Anderson at the National Portrait Gallery: In Washington, singer Marian Anderson is best remembered for her 1939 Easter concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial — a concert organized after Anderson was not allowed to perform before an integrated audience at Constitution Hall. Learn more about Anderson, whose four-decade career included sold-out international tours and celebrated recordings of operas and spirituals, at a day-long celebration in the Kogod Courtyard. Highlights include the Choral Arts Society of Washington leading a family-friendly singalong at noon, a curator-led gallery tour of the “One Life: Marian Anderson” exhibit at 2 p.m., and a concert of Anderson’s spirituals performed by soprano Janice Chandler-Eteme at 3. Noon to 4 p.m. Free.
