A magnificent study of Anderson's life featuring appendixes of her repertory and discography.
From the Publisher:
A biography of one of America's greatest singers and a seminal figure in the American civil rights movement uncovers the life of the first African American soloist at the Met.
Annotation:
This sympathetic biography of Marian Anderson--the first African-American singer to perform in the White House--reveals how the Daughters of the American Revolution attempted to squash her career. While author Allan Keiler documents Anderson's struggle to become an appreciated American musician and her involvement with the civil rights movement, he illuminates America's history of racism.

Praise

Boston Globe
"The great value of Allan Keiler's new biography of Anderson is that it aims to place the focus where Anderson always wanted it to be, on her musical accomplishments....In a fascinating appendix Keiler summarizes her repertory, which was far larger than even her substantial recorded legacy might indicate....Keiler writes straightforwardly and sometimes eloquently....This is a very good book about a great woman and a great musician...." - Richard Dyer 2/8/00

New York Times Book Review
"As Allan Keiler writes in his smart and disturbing biography, it was an accident, never welcomed by Anderson, that her artistic journey so often coincided with high public drama." - Anthony Heilbut 04/02/2000
