She Persisted: Marian Anderson

When renowned classical singer Marian Anderson wasn't allowed to sing at a theater in Washington, DC, because she was Black, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt invited her to sing at the Lincoln Memorial, at a concert attended by thousands of people. Marian went on to sing around the world on behalf of the UN and the US State Department, and as a part of the Civil Rights Movement, she also performed at the March on Washington. She went on to win many awards, including the first ever Presidential Medal of Freedom and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award — and she inspired countless people along the way.

Inspired by the #1 New York Times bestselling series She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter book biography that teaches young readers about this beloved artist and determined activist! Author Katheryn Russell-Brown captures Anderson's courage and dignity, even in the face of prejudice. With black and white interior illustrations throughout by Gillian Flint, this early reader is an elegant introduction to Anderson's life and ongoing influence, both in art and in Civil Rights.
