My Lord, What a Night
Written by Deborah Brevoort
In 1937, legendary singer Marian Anderson gave a concert in Princeton, NJ, but was refused accommodations at a local hotel because of her race. Albert Einstein, then a professor at Princeton, invited her to stay at his home, creating a furor and beginning a friendship between the two that would last a lifetime. Inspired by actual events, My Lord, What a Night explores the struggles faced by two icons of the 20th century, as they deal with the injustices of Jim Crow and the rise of anti-Semitism during a highly divided era in American history.
