Nadine will share more vintage footage of Nina and pertinent excerpts from her wonderful biography of this powerful figure in jazz history. Nina’s powerful presence, bold lyrics and eloquent music made her a figure many sought out as a leader of the jazz community in defining the essence of race and power relations during this important time in our nation’s history.
