Singing civil rights: Nerdette on the women of the Civil Rights Movement

This week’s Nerdette Podcast is all about women of the civil rights movement. Nerdette interviewed Ruth Feldstein, author of the new book ‘How it Feels to be Free: Black Female Entertainers of the Civil Rights Movement’ about how musicians like Nina Simone mixed politics and jazz. Co-host of the Nerdette Podcast Tricia Bobeda is here to talk a little more about this with us.
