Description
(Newbery Honor Book) Though not a crusader or a spokesperson by nature, Marian Anderson came to stand for all black artists—and for all Americans of color—when, with the help of such prominent figures as Eleanor Roosevelt, she gave her landmark 1939 performance on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, heralding the end of segregation in the arts. Drawing on Marian Anderson's own writings and other contemporary accounts, this biography for readers 8 to 12 by the author of Lincoln: A Photobiography pays tribute to a singer who pursued her art despite the social constraints that limited the careers of black performers in the 1920s and 1930s. Dozens of archival black and white photographs grace the text, which also features a partial discography and suggestions for further reading.
