On this day in 1939 contralto Marian Anderson performed at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. For more information click here.
This brings back a precious memory for me: in the summer of 1968 I met Marian Anderson at a student music seminar in New York City, where she gave a speech to the 50 of us. It was a wonderful week of inspiration and learning.
