CLICK HERE: Nina Simone: Four Women by Christina Ham
Nina Simone's velvet voice was unafraid to sing lyrics that cut right to the truth. From the iconic "I Put a Spell on You" to the protest song "Four Women" of the title, her music was a personal and political exploration branded in the kiln of the civil rights movement. Simone's lyrics weave a story of four women alienated from themselves and one another due to the color of their skin. But through it all, they remain triumphant woman proud "To Be Young, Gifted and Black."
