Trivia Question: What First Lady of the U.S.A. famously invited Marian Anderson to perform at the Lincoln Memorial?

Anderson was booked by the D.A.R. to perform at a concert hall. However, once they found out she was Black, the D.A.R. refused to work with her. Eleanor Roosevelt hoped to make up for this slight by granting Marion Anderson an even grander stage.
