Matilda Sissieretta Joyner Jones
b. 1-5-1868; Portsmouth, Virginia
d. 6-24-1933; Providence, RI

Opera soprano Sissieretta Jones was known as the “Black Patti” in reference to the Italian singer Adelina Patti. In addition to singing for four presidents (Benjamin Harrison, Cleveland, McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt) she sang for the British royal family, toured with the Fisk Jubilee Singers, and had great international success.

Her opera career in the US was stymied by racism so she formed the Black Patti Troubadours which toured the vaudeville circuit. She left performing in 1915 to care for her mother, and died penniless in 1933.
