My Mixtape: "To be Young, Gifted and Black" by Nina Simone


My Mixtape asks people from the Bay Area and beyond to contribute a song that is meaningful to them. Barbara Lee is the Congresswoman for the 13th District of California. She chose this song by Nina Simone because it has echoes in today's Black Lives Matter Movement. Listen, think, and react appropriately.
