Nina Jazz Legend & Civil Rights Activist Nina Simone

Nina Jazz Legend & Civil Rights Activist Nina Simone


A stunning picture-book biography of the High Priestess of Soul and one of the greatest voices of the 20th century. 

With evocative black-and-white illustrations and moving prose, readers are introduced to Nina Simone, jazz-music legend and civil-rights activist. Shared as a lullaby to her daughter, a soulful song recounts Simone's career, the trials she faced as an African American woman, and the stand she took during the Civil Rights Movement. This poignant picture book offers a melodic tale that is both a historic account of an iconic figure and an extraordinary look at how far we've come and how far we still need to go for social justice and equality. A timeless and timely message aptly appropriate for today's social and political climates.
