60 years ago tonight I was thrilled attend the historic debut of Marian Anderson,who paved the way for Afro-American singers..like a Jackie Robinson Story. When that curtain rose, it was a phenomenal reaction......Bless her!

So sad we missed out on Adele Addison, Camilla Williams, and others who were not allowed in the "big time."   At least we have had,since Anderson, Bumbry,Price,Verrett,Mitchell,Brownlee,etc......Thanks to this great lady!!
