Marian Andersons majestic voice mesmerised the nation - but hercourage in confronting racism was equally inspirational. When Ising, she stated, I want them to see my soul. And that iscolourless. Anderson became the first African-American to recordwith a major recording company; the first to perform as a soloistat the Philharmonic Societys Academy of Music; and the first toappear on the stage of the exalted Metropolitan Opera House. In1939, when she was banned from singing in Washingtons ConstitutionHall, Marian made history by performing for a crowd of 75,000 atthe Lincoln Memorial. Victoria Garrett Jones tells Andersonsremarkable story, which travels from Philadelphias poorestneighbourhood to the worlds finest concert stages.
