This paper examines how Marian Anderson was a role model to all African-Americans in the 1930s and how through her voice and her songs she brought people and music closer together despite the racial gap. It looks at how she opened the doors for other African-American singers, workers and dreamers and how through her courage and understanding of the world around her, Marian Anderson conquered racism in the United States of America.

From the Paper:

"Finally, Marian was noticed and her extremely lovely voice was discovered. She was invited to go to England to study German lieder with Raimun von Zur Muhlen. She met artists, musicians and actors there. She attended concerts of famous artists such as Arthur Rubinstein and Lily Pons, learning and growing in her music with each experience without worrying about racism (Patterson 60). Anderson's first European concert was in Europe at Wigmore Hall. After her success she returned to the US in 1930 to give a few concerts, but her career was standing still. Here however, she was discovered by a representative of the Julius Rosenwald Fund, who helped black people to advance their education. "
