Nina Simone, pianist and singer extraordinaire! Nina Simone, civil rights activist! Nina Simone, daughter of Africa! One Nina without the others is not Nina.

Music was the foundation of her life and is the foundation of this portrait. Her comrades and heroes of the Civil Rights Movement are honored in small likenesses on the wall. The colorful spattering of fabric throughout represent her love for Africa and the joy she found among its people.
