Movie Quote of the Day – What Happened, Miss Simone?, 2015 (dir. Liz Garbus)

Nina Simone: I choose to reflect the times and the situations in which I find myself. That to me is my duty and at this crucial time in our lives, when everything is so desperate, when every day is a matter of survival, I don’t think I can help but be involved. Young people, black and white, know this, and so that’s why they’re so involved in politics. We will shape and mold this country, or it will not be molded or shaped at all anymore. So, I don’t think you have a choice. How can you be an artist and not reflect the times?
