Legacy of Hope: The Marian Anderson Story



Sabrina Coleman Clark Marian Anderson (1897–1993) was an African American singer who overcame both poverty and the blatant racism of her day to become an international opera star. She may be best remembered now for her historic 1939 performance on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. In the crowd that day was 10-year-old Martin Luther King, Jr.

Sabrina Coleman Clark, operatic soprano and educator, celebrates the life of this true American heroine in “Legacy of Hope: The Marian Anderson Story.” Ms. Coleman Clark melds together the music, history, and life story of this great artist into a captivating and thought-provoking narrative.
