    Marian Anderson, A Musical Icon

    Marian Anderson, A Musical Icon

    Marianne Anderson was considered one of the best musicians of her time. She performed across Europe, where she became a massive celebrity, and once the Third Reich began to gain steam, she returned to America to perform in her home country. She was also a Black woman singing opera during Jim Crow - which meant she had to fight twice as hard to earn half the respect of peers with a fraction of her talent. She had many triumphs throughout her life and her voice and legacy remain renowned and acclaimed to this day.

    Daughters of the Confederacy, the Southern Women's Cult to White Supremacy

    Daughters of the Confederacy, the Southern Women's Cult to White Supremacy

    The United Daughters of the Confederacy is the group primarily responsible for the erection of allll those Confederate statues we've been arguing about for years - yet their name is still largely unknown and untarnished in the eyes of the general public. But as the group largely responsible for the way the South has spent the last 150 years learning about Civil War history (aka, the Lost Cause myth versus what actually happened) and for spending millions on Confederate monuments, we think it's high time that you know who these women (white, Southern, and genteel) are - and what they have wrought.
