"Princess Noire - The Tumultuous Reign of Nina Simone"

by Nadine Cohodas

From the author of Dinah Washington's biography, "Queen," comes the story of Eunice Waymon - better known as Nina Simone.

"The gifts that would turn Eunice Waymon into Nina Simone (February 21, 1933–April 21, 2003) were apparent by the time she was three, though the passions, the mood swings, and the ferocious intensity that marked her adult life were buried for years under hter talent. She was born on February 21, 1933, the sixth of eight children, in Tryon, North Carolina, . . ."

A must-have for the African American home library.
