Nina Simone. A song of fiery, righteous anger. Nina Simone boldly went where no black woman had gone before when she performed her song “Mississippi, Goddamn” in public for the first time at a Carnegie Hall concert in New York in 1964.
It was set over a furious tempo and was introduced unapologetically.
“The name of this tune is ‘Mississippi God-DAMN,’” she declared to the mostly white audience, “…and I mean every word of it.”
In the first verse she refers to the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Alabama in 1963 that killed four children and the violence over desegregation in Tennessee before setting her focus on Mississippi, where civil rights leader Medgar Evans was assassinated in 1963.
