With musical proclamations like “Mississippi Go#dam” and an iconic style, Nina Simone, whom once called Mount Vernon NY home – was both loved and feared throughout the 1960s for her outspoken vision of Black Freedom.  Today, Nina is more popular years after her death than ever before. President Barack Obama listed “Sinnerman” in his top 5 favorite songs, and whether re-mixed, re-sampled or in its pure form, Nina’s music continues to empower people around the world with its unrelenting appeal for justice. With new insights into her musical journey from Classical Music and the segregated South, the worlds of Jazz and Civil Rights, through her erratic behavior and self-exile, Nina’s legacy is chartered all the way to the place where she found freedom.                – Written by Anonymous … www.imdb.com/title/tt3531790/plotsummary?ref_=tt_ov_pl
