nina simone, born eunice waymon, was a jazz singer and civil rights activist...during the civil rights era she released "mississippi goddam" in response to the murder of medgar evars and bombing of the sixteen street baptist church which killed four little black girls by the names of addie mae collins, cynthia wesley, carole robertson, and carol denise mcnair...she was a common fixture during the movement as she participated in marches from selma to montgomery and recorded several more civil rights songs such as "old jim crow", "i wish i knew how it would feel to be free", and lorraine hansberry's "to be young, gifted, and black"...she evaded the united states due to her refusal to pay taxes in protest to the country's involvement in the vietnam war...she wrote an autobiography titled "i put a spell on you" shortly before her death in 2003
