Grade 7, Tennessee, 3/5/1999
I think that Marian Anderson should be nominated for the Trailblazer Honor Roll. She was a great musical pioneer of her time, and she was one of the only Negroes to sing in the most important opera house in the United States. In fact, her church and community supported her in her lessons. Also, she became so famous that she once put on a show at the White House. This was unheard of in her time. She set the standards for both white and black singers. Marian Anderson had an amazing talent, and her famous voice will always be remembered. Marian Anderson was a great person, a famous singer, and a trailblazer that should be nominated for the Trailblazer Honor Roll.
