Movie Monday: What Happened, Miss Simone?

This choice is not necessarily a movie, more of a documentary but I enjoyed learning about the life and times of Nina Simone, one of the most influential singers my race has ever had. At the height of Nina Simone’s career she began to take part in the civil rights movement, which some say jeopardized her career because she became radical. What I loved about this documentary is that it humanizes Nina, and shows her vulnerabilities and quite frankly her demons with growing up in an American society that devalued her because of her blackness. Unlike many other entertainers, she couldn’t sit back idly and do nothing. She was very involved in the struggle.

If you have Netflix, please watch What Happened, Miss Simone?
