Happy Black History Month Peekers! This month, I will provide interesting facts and stories pertaining to an African-American that has made a contribution in our society.
Marian Anderson, a gifted contralto singer, was the first African-American to perform with the New York Metropolitan Opera in 1955. Born February 27, 1897, in Philadelphia, she displayed vocal talent as a child, but her family could not afford to pay lessons. However, members of her church raised money for her to attend a music school.
Great things can happen when you invest in someone else’s gift. Make an effort to invest in others today.
