NINA SIMONE: STRANGE FRUIT

I fell deeply in love with music in the 10th grade, in a history class. I can't tell you who the teacher was because I simply can't remember- but I will never forget the sound of Nina Simone's voice ringing through the class- something so poetic, something I've never heard of- and In later years, hearing many of my favorite artist like Kanye West sample her, and Brooklyn museum feature her as if she was art- took my breath away.
