Lincoln Center and Black Rock Coalition

In this spirited tribute, a group of powerfully-talented women (hand-picked by Musical Director Tamar-kali) pays homage to a sister traveler of song through works that Nina Simone wrote, touched, or transformed during her transcendent career. This presentation makes use of music to illustrate the fact that, while on the eclectic journey of the oppressed and self-possessed, Nina Simone followed her heart around the globe, finding joy, love, frustration, liberation, confusion, sadness, and hope, often in many different languages.

Co-presented by Lincoln Center and York College/CUNY.
