Nina Simone: Four Women
By Christina Ham
When “The High Priestess of Soul” Nina Simone heard about the tragic bombing death of four young girls in an Alabama church in 1963, the songstress turned to her music as a means of expressing the country’s agony. Powerful anthems such as “Four Women,” “Mississippi Goddam,” “His Eye Is on the Sparrow,” and “To Be Young, Gifted and Black” followed, fueling the Civil Rights Movement and transforming her public persona from songstress to activist. Through storytelling and song, Nina Simone: Four Women reveals how this iconic artist found her true voice.
