Performance by Josette Bushell-Mingo

Bing Theatre
Josette Bushell-Mingo’s searing and soulful theatrical production inspired by the life and music of legendary artist and activist Nina Simone will make its U.S. premiere at USC. With live musical accompaniment, Bushell-Mingo connects Nina Simone’s political acts as part of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement to struggles in her personal life and persisting inequities in today’s society, questioning how far we’ve really come.
