Marian Anderson sang opera and spirituals, performing for rapt audiences around the globe.  After impressing European heads of state and composers with her “once in a hundred years” voice, Anderson returned home to a segregated society.  Barred (because of her skin color) from performing at Constitution Hall, Anderson performed a free concert at the Lincoln Memorial on Easter Sunday 1939.  Broadcast nationwide via radio and drawing a live audience of 75,000, Anderson’s performance highlighted the gap between her nation’s stated intentions and its “separate but equal” realities.  Women Who Dare: Marian Anderson brings to light Anderson’s dramatic and selfless life with engaging text and rare photographs.  5 ¾” x 6 ½”.  Hardcover; 64 pages.
