The long awaited trailer for the Nina Simone biopic starring Zoe Saldana is finally out. Nina was known as a singer, activist, survivor and all around legend. Her music is timeless and possibly bumping in some of this generations humbled abodes.
In the beginning of the trailer, Nina is seen being carried into a mental ward. During her stay, she meets a young man, Clifton Henderson (played by David Oyelowo), whom she pays to travel with her as her care taker. It appears they have a tiring relationship but nonetheless they happen to make a spark.
On her road back to stardom, Henderson helped her to fight for the African American community through her music.
‘NINA’ couldn’t have come at a better time! Let the Black Girl Magic and Formation continue.
