Gain Insight on the Struggle of Four Women During This Thought-Provoking Play

September 16, 1963. What is this day? Well, it’s the day after the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama led Nina Simone to shift her career from artist to artist-activist as she believed, "An artist's responsibility is to reflect the times."

Nina Simone: Four Women uses the framework of one of her most blistering songs, "Four Women," to give voice to a group of women who suffered from self-hatred due to the different hues of their skin: Aunt Sarah, Sephronia, Sweet Thing, and Peaches.

This play with music includes some of Nina Simone's most popular Civil Rights anthems such as "Go Limp" and "Young, Gifted, and Black" to look at an artist and the women around her as their journey leads them down a path of discovery and healing. It’s a beautiful portrait of modern culture, and you cannot afford to miss it as it comes to the Jubliee Theatre stage on Friday, September 28th!
