Nina Simone: Four Women

For all those who think that the Sotomayor confirmation is going to go smoothly, I hope you’re right.

For the rest of us, draw strength from the High Priestess of Soul Nina Simone (Eunice Kathleen Waymon)  singing at the Antibes Jazz Festival in 1965.

h/t to my parents Vivian Nelson and Columbus Monroe Lewis for sharing the music they loved with me from Simone to Beethoven and for listening to mine.
