Description
On Easter Sunday 1939, Marian Anderson sang before a throng of 75,000 listeners at the Lincoln Memorial. She was at the peak of a dazzling career, yet she had recently been barred from performing at the Daughters of the American Revolution's Constitution Hall simply because she was black. Eleanor Roosevelt resigned from the DAR over the incident, which suddenly became national news, while Anderson made the best of the politically charged occasion by captivating the country with her talent and her dignity. Raymond Arsenault's richly textured history evokes an early milestone in the struggle for civil rights and the quiet, inspiring courage of Anderson.

"A tightly focused look at the political and cultural events that led up to and came after her famous 1939 concert. It's a story that's well worth retelling."NYTimes
