Set to the backdrop of September 16, 1963. The day after the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama. Nina Simone: Four Women follows the iconic sensation as she shifts her career from artist to artist-activist as she believed, an artist's responsibility is to reflect the times.

Nina Simone: Four Women uses the framework of one of her most historic songs Four Women to give sassy and moving voice to a group of women, navigating the challenges brought to them due to different hues of their skin, representing the four beautiful little girls who died at the church that day.

Listen to their story, with a phenomenal cast singing some of Nina Simone's most popular Civil Rights anthems such as Mississippi Goddam, Go Limp, and Young, Gifted, and Black to look at an artist and the women around her as their journey leads them down a path of discovery and healing.
