Nina Simone live at the Harlem Festival, 1969

An extraordinary video of an incredible concert, especially given the context. Highly recommended.

Bonus: When you’ve listened to Nina Simone’s Four Women part way through the video above, then listen to Talib Kweli’s For Women, which was inspired by Nina Simone’s song, and is equally powerful.
