I've always enjoyed Nina Simone's music, but I never truly understood the stories behind it. A couple of months ago, I watched a Netflix-produced documentary called What Happened, Miss Simone?. This documentary was fascinating and really dove into some timely topics - the civil rights movement, domestic abuse, and mental health. If you are a fan of music - especially Jazz - you need to make a point to watch this one!
Because of this documentary, a song that I've always liked has decidedly become a favorite of mine. Have a listen to Mississippi Goddamn below, and let me know what you think about the documentary!
