Is it possible that the line that connects with Anderson could be the ancestors of Marian Anderson, the famous African American contralto?

I am a Birchett, and my grandmother's maiden name was Anderson. Family stories say she was related to Marian Anderson. Both the Anderson and Birchett African American lines trace back to Virginia. I have all but located the exact plantations of the Birchett slaves, but this information from you may be the missing links in tracing the genealogy of my grandmother.

Any information you have would be extremely appreciated. Thanks!
