NINA SIMONE ON HER BIRTHDAY
The first story of Miss Nina Simone as a child is my favorite story. The song below isn't necessarily my favorite as far as the actual music goes, but it's a great one for lyrics.
One of the best documentaries I've seen on an individual person is about Nina Simone and it is availble on Netflix: WHAT HAPPENED MISS SIMONE? It totally disabused me of the notion that Nina Simone was the epitome of the "strong black woman" stereotype. This documentary is quick and easy black woman history. I highly recommend it.
