Description

Lillian Evans Tibbs was born in Washington in 1891, a time when no woman of color sang professionally in the opera, anywhere in the world. This video traces the life of the remarkable woman who reinvented herself as Madame Evanti and broke the color barrier to achieve international renown as a coloratura and lyric soprano.
