More About Stand Up Straight and Sing! by Jessye Norman
 
 
 
Overview
Norman offers a broad and global perspective on life, the arts, and spirituality . . . Inspiring. "Booklist" In "Stand Up Straight and Sing ," Jessye Norman recalls in rich detail the strong women who were her role models, from her ancestors to family friends, relatives, and teachers. She hails the importance of her parents in her early learning and experiences in the arts. And she describes coming face-to-face with racism, not just as a child living in the segregated South but also as an adult out and about in the world. She speaks of the many who have inspired her and taught her essential life lessons. A special interlude on her key relationship with the pioneering African American singer Marian Anderson reveals the lifelong support that this great predecessor provided through her example of dignity and grace at all times."
