|Marian Anderson visiting her old South|
One of my favorite read-loud books for young children is When Marian Sang by Pam Muñoz Ryan. I cherish it not only because it does a great job introducing young people to Marian Anderson, but because it does a fabulous job showing how Ms. Anderson's community, supported her as a young child and teen in terms of helping her to pay for the best teachers to groom her amazing talents.
I ask you to consider supporting Auguste's College Expenses Fund because I dare say he, a Philadelphia son, is on a path to transform his community. Here is the link to learn more: https://www.gofundme.com/augustes-college-fund
