The Amazing Nina Simone is a documentary about the legacy of the legendary singer. The film tracks Nina Simone as she is impacted by classical music, the segregated south and the civil rights movement.  Her music has always had the ability to empower people to push for greater civil rights and justice.

DJ Reborn will play music by Nina Simone before the performance.
