The life story of the American contralto singer considered one of the greatest of the twentieth century, of whose voice Arturo Toscanini declared to be one "heard once in a hundred years", who had to go to Europe to receive the recognition due to her genius because of discrimination against blacks both on the stage and in the audience at American venues, culminating in the famous 1939 showdown at Washington DC's Constitution Hall when it refused permission for her to sing to an integrated audience, a decision which backfired when Anderson was invited to perform at the Lincoln Memorial where she gave a stunning performance on Easter Sunday 1939. This was to be the beginning of a series of doors which Miss Anderson opened for black American performers who followed her, from desegregated audiences to starring in the Metropolitan Opera and more (57 minutes, 1991, Color).
