When Marian Sang
by Pam Munoz Ryan

Marian Anderson called her voice a gift from God.  When Marian sang, the world stopped to listen.  Even from the time she was a young child, people came for miles around to hear the remarkable voice that could sound like rain, fireflies, and thunder.  Life was not easy for this lady with the celebrated voice.  As a black singer in an America filled with prejudice in the early 1900s, she was denied access to hotels, concert halls, and restaurants because of her race.  Unwilling to "fight" for civil rights, Marian Anderson sang with her eyes closed but opened the eyes of others to the need to abolish segregation and prejudice.  Here is her story, from her experiences of singing in church to her dream coming true at the Metropolitan Opera.
