Marian Anderson - The Voice of the Century

By Rebecca Price Janney, Apr 15 2019 11:52AM


Marian Anderson was known as “The Voice of the Century.” Born in South Philadelphia in 1902, this gifted African-American singer rose to international prominence, becoming the first black person to perform with New York’s Metropolitan Opera. Her outstanding talent and quiet personality not only opened doors for her, but broke down racial barriers in the musical world.


This month is the 80th anniversary of her historic concert at the Lincoln Memorial. For the full story, click on my podcast link or visit Anchor.fm/rebeccapricejanney.
