Nina Simone, Lena Horne and more black female performers who sang their civil rights

nerdettepodcast:

From Ella Baker to Abbey Lincoln, Lena Horne to Dorothy Height, let’s get to know women central to the civil rights movement. Some preferred staying behind-the-scenes, others performed their civil rights on stage and screen. Then we bring the conversation up to the present by talking about what’s changed since then (and what hasn’t) for performers like Beyoncé. Thanks for listening and sharing!
