Eleanor Roosevelt's position on Segregation

In 1939 Eleanor Roosevelt resigned her membership in the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) for their refusal to allow an African American to perform in Constitution Hall. Could this be the primary significance of her presence in the novel?

That could be a question to ask Edward Kelsey Moore.

I feel like Mr. Moore's explanation kind of confirmed my thoughts, even though he did not specifically refer to this event.
