Monday TV: The Story of Marian Anderson

he life of singer Marian Anderson, who was barred from performing at the D.A.R. Constitution Hall in 1939 because she was Black and instead made a triumphant performance at the Lincoln Memorial, is the subject of tonight’s “American Experience” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings).

It’s one of a number of Black History Month offerings available that also includes “Seizing Justice: The Greensboro 4” (Smithsonian, 9 p.m.) and “MLK: The Assassination Tapes” (Smithsonian, 10 p.m.).  

Kevin James stars as a NASCAR crew chief in the new comedy series “The Crew” (Netflix, streaming). 

Perfect for a network seeking to exploit both aliens and Alaska, here’s the new “Aliens in Alaska” (Discovery+, streaming), where the suspect outsiders may well be polar bears. Elsewhere tonight: “The Alaska Triangle” (Travel, 8 p.m.) and “Bigfoot in Alaska” (Travel, 10 p.m.). 

“The Investigation” (HBO, 10:05 p.m.) has to wait for DNA results, and it takes nearly the entire episode. 

The four-part limited series “The Salisbury Poisonings” (AMC, 10 p.m.) concludes.

The biggest drama on “The Bachelor” (ABC, 8 p.m.) this week has been off camera. Past racist expressions from the contestant Rachael has caused her to apologize, and Chris Harrison’s defense of her comments has caused him to “step away” from the program for a while. Immediately, he won’t host the upcoming After the Last Rose for the first time.
