From Miss Ida's Porch
Miss Ida's porch is a place where adults recall their past and where the youngsters love to listen in. On one perfect night, tales are told about two great African-American performers--Duke Ellington, who stayed at Mrs. Lomax's house when he was shut out of whites only hotels, and Marian Anderson, whose two historic concerts in Washington, D.C., testified to the power of the civil rights movement.
