Black is the color of my voice

Tuesday, March 22

Fringe First award winner Apphia Campbell’s acclaimed production heads on an extensive national tour, after sell-out seasons in Shanghai, New York, Edinburgh, and in the West End of London.

Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Black Is The Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father. She reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church, to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement.

Written and directed by Apphia Campbell.

Black is the Color of My Voice is in The Drum from Tuesday 22 – Saturday 26 March 2022. Tickets available from £12.
