THIS LITTLE LIGHT of MINE is an inventive one-woman musical tribute honoring the ground breaking careers of two African-American opera legends who overcame many racial barriers from the Jim Crow era through the Civil Rights Movement to become international opera stars. With live singing, storytelling, recorded excerpts and documentary images, the performance shines a light on African-American singers who walk in the footsteps of Marian Anderson and Leontyne Price and features opera arias and songs associated these two operatic legends.
