The third African American female musician is Marian Anderson, the voice of freedom. She performed a wide range of music, opera to spirituals, as a contralto. Because of her amazing voice and poise she broke many racial barriers that kept African American artist from performing at venues across the US. But with the support of powerful fans, she was thrust into the spotlight. She performed infant of the Lincoln Memorial and was the African American to perform at the Metropolitan Opera. She also become an ambassador for civil and human rights. My parents both loved her voice, painting this while listening to her music was a beautiful time of reflection for me.

The second African American female musician is Alice Coltrane. If the name sounds familiar her husband was famed musician John Coltrane, but she was a talented artist on her own. She played the harp, piano, and performed vocals. She felt a spiritual connection to music and lived her life sharing her gift.

I am taking a portrait class called Remaking Black History. I have had 3 prompts to prepare for the class. Each one foucses on a African American female musician. The first of the three is Betty Davis. She was a force of nature and too scandalous to play in the states. She, like many black artists of her time, moved overseas to fully express themselves. This has been a joy to work on.

Last year came with many challenges, including the recent passing of my mother. She is at peace and with my Daddy again. It’s not the happiest of New Years for me, but I do have faith in the future. Here’s to a Hopeful New Year.
