Today’s entry in Songs for the Movement is “How It Feels To Be Free” from Nina Simone, performed live at the Montreux in 1976.
Listen carefully to what she shared. I have had this on repeat all day today. I hope it resonates with you as much as it did with me. This song is just as relevant today as it was then.
If you were of age, or coming of age at that time, I would love to hear from you about your thoughts on Nina, this song or her other works, and the climate of things.
