Nina Simone didn’t believe in the Eurocentric hegemony that surrounded the media industry , and actively fought against it through her music and her civil activism. So don’t insult her in her grave by having a light skinned actress with prosthetics portray her.
Furthermore, the script is just an exaggeration of her life told by former lovers who sold their stories for money. There has been no consultation with Nina’s actual family over what has been written. Why should this shit represent her legacy?
Her official website itself is making a case to have the Nina Simone biopic stopped. You can read the details of the argument at the website: An Open Letter To Anyone Who Cares About Nina Simone
