Marian Anderson

I was a student at the University of Michigan when the legendary singer Marian Anderson made a stop there on her farewell concert tour. I don’t remember what a ticket cost, but I do remember scrounging nickels & dimes to buy one & sitting, breathlessly enthralled, in the balcony. Today, Feb. 27th, in 1897, is Marian Anderson’s birthday. This marker in located on Fifth Avenue in New York City.
