2.27 Marian Anderson was born in Philadelphia in 1897. She was an American singer, one of the finest contraltos of her time. Marian Anderson was the first Black to sing at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, making her debut in 1955 as Ulrica in Verdi's Un ballo in Maschera.

When you visit Philadelphia, be sure to take the tour of the Marian Anderson Historical Residence and Museum, a house she purchased in 1924, There is much memorabilia there.

Eating a sandwich made with yummuyummy bread bought from Panera yesterday. Reading the Basquiat book. Going to a film and book discussion tomorrow.
