GB Motherboard/The Mothership Project. DAY 7 .  “Sissieretta Jones was a Trailblazing Black Opera Singer | Unladylike2020 | American Masters | PBS”

There are no recordings of her singing. Which speaks to something else that I’m compelled to say by not saying. So I’m leaving these other historical records of her streaking through the sky like a fireball here in place of her absent voice.
