Nina Simone Movie: Zoe Saldana Selection Criticized

Comments: 0  | Leave A Comment

There’s been a lot of criticism of  Zoe Saldana having been selected to play the lead in the movie of the life of singer Nina Simone.  Some say she’s not “Black” enough; not black enough because she’s latina and black or because Saldana has put on makeup to darken her skin for the role?  “I’m playing this role, I don’t care about the criticism.  I don’t care who says I’m not this or I’m not that.  I know who I am and I know what Nina Simone means to me.  I’m doing this out of love for Nina, my people and my pride in being a Black woman, a Latina woman and an American woman”.  nina
