The film chronicle Nina Simone and the rise to fame and relationship with her manager Clifton Henderson played by David Oyelowo (Selma).

The controversial is based around casting and the lack to use an African-American actress (particularly someone who identify as a Black person on a daily bases) to play the role of a woman who wrote, “Young, Gifted & Black”. Once again, social media is lite up creating great debate regarding casting including offering their casting picks.
