Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Apphia Campbell’s stunning production Black Is The Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father. She reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church, to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.

The show is available as a double bill with Soul Sessions, Apphia’s cabaret show paying tribute to Nina Simone’s phenomenal career.
