Nina-Simone in Her Prime

Originally uploaded by gypsyman

This is to announce a new blog composed by Tim Johnson from my Blues People class, very well done with lots of interesting materials gathered together, including a concert Nina Simone did in Mount Morris Park in the 70s, which is included on utube in its entirety. Lots of interesting archival materials from the Schomburg included as well.
