This Easter marks 73 years since the Marian Anderson Lincoln Memorial concert.  In these 73 years the Daughters of The American Revolution has made a lot of progressive changes. 

Today at the Lunch Counter we have Karen Batchelor also known as Karen Farmer. Karen is the first acknowledged black member invited and accepted into the DAR after the unfortunate Marian Anderson incident.  Also sitting with us today at the lunch counter is Kim Harrison, a descendant of Lot Little.  Lot Little was, a slave who fought at the Battle of Saratoga.  Both women will describe their journey leading them to the DAR.  They will also discuss the surprising revelations of that journey.
