Nina Simone, Lena Horne and more black female performers who sang their civil rights

From Ella Baker to Abbey Lincoln, Lena Horne to Dorothy Height, let's get to know women central to the civil rights movement.

Then we bring the conversation up to the present by talking about what's changed since then (and what hasn't) for performers like Beyonce. http://nerdettepodcast.com
