"Her Heritage explores the lives and accomplishments of
more than 1,000 American women from the past and present. The title is divided
into a variety of categories, including physicians, nurses, business women,
aviators, astronauts, educators, and so on.
"...the best parts of Her Heritage are the pleasant
surprises that you'll find scrolling through the index. Looking through the
A's, for example, produced Marian Anderson, the African-American opera singer
who helped to break down a few racial barriers years before the civil rights
movement gained momentum.
"Anderson's immense talent earned her critical success first in
Europe and later in the U.S. In 1939, however, the Daughters of the American
Revolution refused to grant her permission to perform at Washington D.C.'s
Constitution Hall; sparking a controversy that reached right into the White
House. Distressed by this turn of events, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt resigned
from the organization and invited Anderson to perform at the Lincoln Memorial,
