    Born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in Tryon, NC in 1933, Nina Simone was an instinctive musician, an original, versatile singer, pianist, arranger and composer. Her repertoire included jazz standards, gospels and spirituals, classical pieces, folk, blues, pop, African chants, show tunes and her own compositions. On March 24, 1965, she performed her protest song Mississippi Goddam before 40,000 marchers at the conclusion of the third Selma to Montgomery (AL) march. It was one of many songs she either wrote and/or performed that addressed civil rights, and black liberation and identity.
