The controversy around the Nina Simone biopic continues. Her camp shared this powerful video of Nina talking about Blackness, seemingly to emphasize their disapproval of the choice of Zoe Saldana in the leading role (watch video here).
They say: "That BLACKNESS ... in Nina's own words. In delivering Nina Simone's story, we should NOT whitewash away that which compelled her. Dr. Nina Simone, our High Priestess, deserves the integrity of TRUTH, not the disgrace of Hollywood fictionalization."
What's your take on this, guys?
