"Nina Simone had no filter. She spoke with candor about civil rights when many in her position didn’t dare. She sang about uncomfortable subjects and made sure her audiences understood what those songs were really about. Whether due to demons that haunted her or the overpowering desire for social justice that burned deep in her heart, Nina Simone always told the g****m truth."
