With rhythmic, child-centred prose and truly masterful art, Nina perfectly demonstrates the relationship between art and activism. Witness this artist in all her brilliance, singing in protest against racial inequality and discrimination. An essential addition to every young reader’s library.Nina takes us on a journey from the piano stool that young Eunice shared with her father in her childhood home, to the bars and concert halls where she became the one and only Nina Simone.
