Oh, Nina was such an inspiration. Have never heard of this magazine but I'll buy one tomorrow at Borders. You're the best!

The high priestess of soul she was such a rebel. Don't really see Mary J doing her justice. But MJB has her look. Their music and lives are just so opposite.

Terrific recap and photos, Rod. Never gonna be another Nina. Birds flyin' high...

Love her.

Nina Simone was a wonder. Unapologetic for who and what she was- not for sale...

I had the pleasure of seeing her final Washington, D.C. concert at Constitution Hall where she demanded to know, "What the hell is WRONG with you, America? You've got to get Bush's ass the hell up out of here!" At Constitution Hall!!!

There was only one Nina. Courage and activism like hers are missed in times like these.

Thanks for the great article, Rod.

I bought a CD of Nina's, after I heard it featured in that La Femme Nikita knock-off movie "Point of No Return" and loved the sadness of the album. However, I didn't know she was a civil rights activist! And those pics of her are truly glamourous! I'm inspired to go seek out the rest of her catalogue! thanks for posting this!

U beat me 2 it, sorta, Rod....

I discovered Nina as a depressed, confused, unsure teen.... and even tho i didnt learn enuff about her 'till
not long before she died...

I realize i recognized 'who' she was, and that she MEANT something, just BY her VOICE.....


Can i send u the blog i do about my personal 'Tragic' Diva Trinity....? Her, Billie (Holiday), and Edith (Piaf) ..?
