Nina Simone: Four Women
About Nina Simone: Four Women
Fearing for their lives in a basement across the street from the church, the women – including Nina herself – represent four very different African-American perspectives. As she grapples with sorrow and rage, Nina slowly begins her transformation from jazz club chanteuse to the civil rights activist we revere today.
Songs include “Mississippi Goddam,” “I Loves You, Porgy,” “To Be Young, Black and Beautiful,” and “His Eye Is on the Sparrow.”
