The Black Rep presents

Nina Simone: Four Women

May 15, 2019 - June 2, 2019

Edison Theatre

6445 Forsyth Blvd.

Nina Simone: Four Women
by Christina Ham

May 15- June 2, 2019

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 other due to the color of their skin. But, through it all, they remain triumphant — women proud “To Be Young, Gifted and Black.”
