#BlackSpring — Baltimore By Nina Simone

#BlackSpring — Baltimore By Nina Simone
Posted at Crooks & Liars

(via The Sparrow Project) In the 1970’s the legendary artist and civil rights activist, Nina Simone released a song entitled "BALTIMORE." It spoke to the challenges of urban living, particularly for people of color. 2015 looks a lot like 1968. Another black man dead in police custody….Another family grieving…Another city in turmoil.

And so it goes,
