Ep. 011 - Happy Retirement, Marian Anderson

Included in this episode:
Marian Anderson, a world-renowned diva, a towering Civil Rights figure, and an incredibly humble and gracious human being. A woman who was denied hotel rooms and concert halls in a segregated United States and responded with grace and breathtaking artistry. A woman who counted the likes of Jean Sibelius and Albert Einstein among her friends. She broke down racial barriers, not with guns blazing and angry words, but with her art. 

Also included in this episode:
A silly album about a black cat named Snoopy. Just listen to it. Trust us on this.
