A Tribute to Marian Anderson

This program is a tribute to a woman who changed the world both as a artist and civil rights icon. She was beloved by Kings and Queens, and all people around the world who heard her voice. Marian Anderson's concert at the Lincoln Memorial that was sponsored by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt set America on a new path to freedom and justice. As the first African American to sing with The Metropolitan Opera in New York, she forged a path for many artists who work in the operatic field today.
