nasfera2:Nina Simone didn’t play no games when it came to her money 😂

Nina Simone: <p>Black history month artistic figures day five: Singer, pianist, and activist Nina Simone.</p> <p>Nina Simone was born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in Tryon, North Carolina in 1933. She started playing piano when she was three years old and dreamed to one day become an a concert pianist. Her first official recital performance was it a classical recital when she was 12. Her parents, who had taken front row seats for the recital, were forced to move to the back due to segregation at the venue. When Simone found out about it, she refused to play until her parents were allowed to move back to the front. This event sparked her later activism.</p> <p>With the help of scholarship money, Simone was able to attend Allen High School for Girls in Asheville, North Carolina. After her graduation she spent the summer of 1950 at the Juilliard School, as a student of Carl Friedberg, preparing for her addition at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Despite a fantastic and well received audition, Simone was denied admission to the school. She suspected racial prejudice was to blame.</p> <p>In order to make ends meet, Simone ended up taking a job as a resident pianist and singer at a bar. This is when she changed her name from Eunice Waymon to Nina Simone, in order to disguise her identity from her minister parents who did not approve of her playing “the devil’s music“ in bars and clubs. Her mixture of genres, including jazz, blues, and classical music in her performances at the bar earned her a small but loyal fan base.</p> <p>Though she had always drawn on her African-American roots in her music, in the 60s and 70s Simone became very active in civil rights and anti-Vietnam causes. She wrote her now well known song “Mississippi Goddam” in response to racist attacks and murders, including the high profile Birmingham church bombing that killed for little black girls and partially blinded a fifth. She considered it her first civil rights anthem.</p> <p>Later in life Simone moved Barbados and then France, where she lived out her days until passing of breast cancer in 2003.

Nina Simone: Them: Why Do You Post So Much "Black Stuff" My Answer @the original people Happy earthday Nina Simone. Are you being useful to your people, your culture and yourself? Are you nourishing your temple with alkaline, electrical life foods. Are you teaching others what you know, not just for a fee, because the divine knowledge bestowed upon you didn't cost you anything. Are you building with your people, or are you only investing in other communities, we aren't all one big happy community, if we were then Africans wouldn't have and own the least money, resources and power globally. Are you practicing health care not sick care... don't only eat well when you are sick, food is medicine, medicine is food. If you aren't part of the solution you are part of the problem. What are you doing to better yourself so that you can be useful to your culture? Are you practising group economics? Are you practicing self (knowledge of) education. What are you going to leave behind for your children, they can't eat Instagram pictures. Having a "good body" is not a good enough reason for existing, who are you uplifting. Do you spend too much time on your phone and not enough time bettering yourself. You know you need to stretch, you know you need to workout more, you know you need to meditate, you know you need to work on your relationships with your family. Are you going to have an amazing year? It won't just happen, you need to be proactive. What are you doing for the people where you live? Are you going to stop having sex with random, trying to find love without spirituality. Are you trying your hardest to be the best human being you can be? I am, that is why I am always happy ❤ chakabars

Sometimes she needs your attention Sometimes she doesn't get on with her family Sometimes she needs to hit a boxing bag Sometimes she needs to cuddle all day Sometimes she wants to wear make up Sometimes she is bored with her current hairstyle Sometimes she wants you to care about the book she is reading Sometimes she wants you to cook for her Sometimes she wants ganja in her body Sometimes she has to eat that particular food because she knows that has the minerals in that the baby needs Sometimes she is a freedom fighter Sometimes she expresses herself with poetry she writes to herself and you will never see it. Sometimes she want you to hold the door open for her Sometimes she needs to learn from you Other times she needs to teach you Sometimes she wants to buy you something Sometimes she wants to be naked Sometimes she just needs to be left alone Sometimes she doesn't want to hear that gender role sh*t Other times she wants to clean the whole house, not for you but because she can't think when the house is messy Sometimes she needs to go out dancing and she needs you to come with her Sometimes she needs a massage Sometimes she wants to debate politics Sometimes she needs to fight with you, then have crazy make up sex and forget why you were fighting in the first place Sometimes she can't be bothered dressing up Sometimes she wants you to show her some commitment Sometimes she needs to be a free spirit Everyday she needs your respect Everyday she needs love Every day she faces problems created by men which we call sexism Everyday she is a human and doesn't need to be stereotyped, put in to boxes or categories created by men to control and destroy her self esteem, she doesn't need to be objectified or told what to do. She needs to define herself on her own terms for herself and then she need to listen to who she is, what she wants and what she needs. Everyday she needs to feel special and appreciated. chakabars
