She was left out of Civil Rights history...Erased by jazz critics... 

And forgotten by most Americans because no one knew how to categorize her greatness.

the tumultuous trajectory of Nina Simone.”

“This is a large part of the appeal of the documentary 
which features more than 50 interviews with 
Simone’s family, associates and academics.”
“The Amazing Nina Simone is the independent work
of the bunch, a years-in-the-making film that brought documentarian Jeff L. Lieberman into collaboration with Sam Waymon, Simone’s brother and bandmate,”
