Thursday, Feb 18: Nina Simone Tribute @ Lincoln Center

"American girl, World Citizen: A Musical Journey of Nina Simone"

Feb. 18 at 7:00 pm
Lincoln Center and Black Rock Coalition
In this spirited tribute, a group of powerfully-talented women (hand-picked by Musical Director Tamar-kali) pays homage to a sister traveler of song through works that Nina Simone wrote, touched, or transformed during her transcendent career. This presentation makes use of music to illustrate the fact that, while on the eclectic journey of the oppressed and self-possessed, Nina Simone followed her heart around the globe, finding joy, love, frustration, liberation, confusion, sadness, and hope, often in many different languages.

An encore presentation will be held at the Illinois Jacquet Performance Space on February 22.

Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College
899 Tenth Avenue

Co-presented by Lincoln Center and John Jay College/CUNY."
