An Update: Anne Gamble Kennedy article

Yes I am still harassing Wikipedia to post my article about my mother, the late Anne Gamble Kennedy. I was delighted to find in my research that her correspondence with famed contralto Marian Anderson has been preserved and can be found in the University of Pennsylvania Library, in the Marian Anderson Papers.¹

I also added a drawing of Miss Anne Gamble by celebrated artist Aaron Douglas, which can be found in the Special Collections Department of the Fisk University Library.

Here is a clip from the documentary film Matthew Kennedy: One Man's Journey, in which is heard the Gamble/Kennedy duo performing the beginning of Mozart's Sonata for Two Pianos. Enjoy the trip down Memory Lane:

I am bound and determined to get this article past the gatekeepers and onto Wikipedia! Stay tuned...
