Untold history of African kings who ruled India

“The darkest man is here the most highly esteemed and considered better than the others who are not so dark. Let me add that in very truth these people portray and depict their gods and their idols black and their devils white as snow. For they say that God and all the saints are black and the devils are all white. That is why they portray them as I have described.” – Marco Polo,after visiting the Pandyan Kingdom in 1288".

Eunice Kathleen Waymon, (02/21/1933-04/21/2003) better known as Nina Simone was an extraordinary human being who evolved during a harsh era in one many periods of racism in AmeriKKKa (1900-1960). In 1950, she was a child prodigy at the "School of Julliard" in New York. Later her request for a scholarship to Curtis Institute of Music was rejected because she was black.

In the early 1950s she was told that she'd have to provide her own musical accompaniment in order to play in nightclubs ---she trumped the challenge by launching a career as a jazz vocalist.

To her credit, she made over 40 albums between the mid-1950s and mid-1970s. She was cheated out of her royalties (ie. millions) and struggled to survive in a world that was hostile to a black women who knew the classical music invented Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin. If memory serves, the first two were Moors --black men who created classical music!
Her story is one of pain and triumph. Watch her on Amazon Prime - "Nina".
