Development of a script and trailer for a sixty-minute documentary film on the popular singer Marian Anderson.

The development phase of this project will result in the creation of a script and trailer for the documentary film Marian Anderson: The Whole World in Her Hands. This film, which will air nation-wide on WNET’s American Masters on PBS, will be an in-depth exploration of African American contralto Marian Anderson and her achievements as a pioneering artist and civil rights figure, presented in the context of the cultural and racial upheavals she experienced at home and abroad. In order to broaden public understanding of Anderson beyond the iconic moment of her 1939 “Freedom Concert” on steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., this film will also illuminate her exceptional artistic talents, and explore the thoughts and ideas of this deeply private person. Utilizing an extensive body of archival material and new interviews, this film will paint a full, nuanced, and complex picture of a great artist whose contribution to American history and culture deserves a richer examination.
