    To be old, giftless, and white...isn't where it's at.

    NINA, OH SUCH A INDESCRIBEABLE SONG. TO BE YOUNG, GIFTED, AND BLACK, YOU ARE YOUNG, GIFTED, AND BLACK AND THAT'S A FACT! NINA SIMONE HAD TO LIVE IN ANOTHER COUNTRY TO GET HER VOICE HEARD. BUT SHE NEVER LEFT HER PEOPLE AND WAS VERY AWARE OF HER PEOPLES' STRUGGLE IN THE UNITED STATES AND EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD! MY MOTHER QUEEN - NINA SIMONE ...... THANK YOU!

    Bless you Miss Nina Simone & Weldon Irvine for this song. The world needed this to compliment Lorraine Hansberry's book, "To Be Young GIfted & Black."
