Framed by Nina Simone's song "Four Women", this music-filled contemplation on colorism and Black womanhood features popular hits and iconic Civil Rights anthems from the "High Priestess of Soul". Christina Ham's new play imagines a chance encounter between the legendary songstress and a trio of women at the site of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, the event that shifted Simone's career from artist to activist.
