Nina Simone – Four Women.

La canzone narra le sofferenze di quattro donne di colore.

“Four Women” is a song written by jazz singer, composer, pianist and arranger Nina Simone, released on the 1966 album Wild Is the Wind. It tells the story of four different African American women. Each of the four characters represents an African American stereotype in society. “An instantly accessible analysis of the damning legacy of slavery, that made iconographic the real women we knew and would become.” –Thulani Davis, The Village Voice [1]
