Women Who Dare: Marian Anderson


Published with: the Library of Congress

Marian Anderson, a Black contralto, was one of the most renowned singers of the 20th century—an achievement in a time of flagrant racial discrimination. Barred from performing at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, in 1939, she instead performed in front of the Lincoln Memorial, creating a defining moment in American history. A civic champion, she established a scholarship fund so that emerging singers needing financial assistance could dare—as she did—to realize their dreams. Women Who Dare: Marian Anderson brings to light the civic champion and world-class performer’s dramatic and selfless life with engaging text and rare photographs.
