Marian Anderson

  The article on Marianne Anderson and black sisterhood was very insightful. Throughout the article countless examples of the aesthetics of activism were given, particularly in reference to Marianne Anderson. Singing Negro Spirituals written by Florence Price and other black artist showed black pride. Negro Spirituals being included in her sets gave Caucasians a view of black culture. Anderson wearing exquisite garments and being well kept brought positivity to the negative stereotypes surrounding blacks. In today’s media black women are portrayed as being hateful towards one another. Learning about a black sisterhood where they would uplift and support each other made my spirits high. Anderson’s generosity reached past her musicality where she would give the clothes off of her back. Through aesthetics, sisterhood, music and political activism Marianne Anderson and the black sisterhood made great contributions to the black community.
