Nina Simone & The Civil Rights Movement
Sunday, Nov. 2 • 7:30 p.m.
"I didn't like ‘protest music' because a lot of it was so simple and unimaginative it stripped the dignity away from the people it was trying to celebrate. But the Alabama church bombing and the murder of Medgar Evers stopped that argument and with ‘Mississippi Goddam,' I realized there was no turning back." – Nina Simone. This presentation honors the lives of those who struggled for civil rights in America.
