Happy Black History Month! Although I write fiction I incorporate factual Black History into my books, and throughout this month I will be posting excerpts from my novels that reference Black history. This is the fifth installment, an excerpt from my classic romance novel ALL FOR LOVE.
As soon as Mate reached the top of the terrace steps, the orchestra began to play the “Triumphal March” from the opera “Aida” by Giuseppe Verdi.
This was my amazing Angela’s homage to Black History for our wedding; her backdrop as she walked down the aisle. In “Aida” the star and central character of the opera is a Nubian princess, and the role was famously sung by opera great, Leontyne Price.
