What Happened, Miss Simone?

A look into the oft overlooked musical genius Nina Simone, What Happened, Miss Simone? is a powerful look into the passionate life of someone that truly stood for something. You don’t need to have heard of Nina Simone going into this documentary, it takes a look at both her personal and musical life, as well as chronicling her hugely important role as a civil rights activist that simultaneously fueled and transcended her music.

The first part of the film gives us an insight into the incredible life of Simone as a young African-American woman in the south that overcomes countless obstacles to rise to fame as a musician. The second part of the film kicks it up a notch and details her inspiring time as a civil rights activist, of which her importance can’t be overstated.
