When Marian Sang This picture book - with stunning illustrations that subtly dramatise issues of colour - tells the story of Marian Anderson, the first black woman to sing at the Metropolitan Opera, and one of the legendary voices of the 20th century. From reluctant activist to role model, she was drawn into the early battles of the Civil Rights Movement. Banned from performing at a Washington concert hall whilst internationally famous, she went on to sing - after widespread protest led to government intervention - before 75,000 people at the Lincoln Memorial.
