Synopsis
Based on the life of Marian Anderson, one of the most celebrated singers of the 20th century, who broke racial barriers throughout her storied career. Marian's Song takes place both in the present day and in the past, during Anderson's lifetime. When current-day Howard University
student Nevaeh, who admires the singer thanks to stories shared by her grandmother, learns the church where Anderson sang as a child is slated for demolition, she travels to Philadelphia to try to save it. Nevaeh's journey is woven together with Anderson's life story—her
disappointments, her triumphs, and along the way, the works she sang so transcendently, including spirituals and classical pieces.
