Undaunted, Anderson pursued studies privately in her native city through the continued support of the Philadelphia black community, first with Agnes Reifsnyder, then Giuseppe Boghetti. She met Boghetti through the principal of her high school. Anderson auditioned for him singing "Deep River" and he was immediately brought to tears.

When examining the life of an important historical figure there is no substitute for reading their own words. This autobiography, first published in 1956, examines the life of Marian Anderson from her own perspective and her important contribution to civil rights in the United States.

In her straightforward style Anderson tells us of her early childhood in Philadelphia, her growth and development as a musician in an era which tended to ignore the contributions of black artists, and the many interesting people who came into her life. The chapter recounting her April 9, 1939 concert in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC (after the Daughters of the American Revolution refused to let her perform in Constitution Hall because of her race) is quite powerful.

Marian Anderson was a woman and an artist whose Christian faith gave her the strength to endure without bitterness the incidents of racism she encountered. She was indeed a remarkable woman. This book is a must read if you want to know more about her.

Almost finished reading. Most enjoyable read. An amazing story. Ms. Anderson received an honorary degree in 1957 during my graduation from Virginia State College.

Marian Anderson and Robert McFerrin, Sr. both African-Americans "broke the color barrier" by singng at NYC Met. Yet neither made much ado about the question of race.
This story is a must read for all Americans, and musicians, not merely those of color.

I read this when I was 13 years old, and I think every child should read it. It's completely open and clear, and the story of her life is sublime. What more can I say!

I think if children read this there might not be so many kids growing up full of love.
