Date

March 9 (Thursday)
Women’s History Month film series: What Happened, Miss Simone?
5:30 p.m.

The Art Museum is proud to present a series of documentary films in March focused on the lives of four extraordinary women who have had global impact and whose legacies live on today: Nina Simone, Grace Lee Boggs, Eva Hesse, and Diana Vreeland.

Tonight’s film is What Happened, Miss Simone? (102 minutes). In addition to being a recording artist and powerful presence at her concerts, singer-songwriter Nina Simone was a civil rights activist. With Simone's determination to live a life of honesty in which her music and politics were paramount, her relationships with her family, friends, and collaborators were complicated and frequently difficult.
