Marian Anderson (1897–1993)  was the first African American to be named a permanent member of the Metropolitan Opera Company, as well as the first to perform at the White House.

“When I sing, I don’t want them to see that my face is black. I don’t want them to see that my face is white. I want them to see my soul. And that is colorless.~ Marian Anderson
