Nina Simone: Four Women
February 27 March 31
My skin is black, My arms are long, My hair is woolly, My back is strong...

Framed by Nina Simone's song "Four Women", this music-filled contemplation on colorism and Black womanhood features popular hits and iconic Civil Rights anthems from the "High Priestess of Soul". Christina Ham's new play imagines a chance encounter between the legendary songstress and a trio of women at the site of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, the event that shifted Simone's career from artist to activist.
