Black is the Colour of my Voice

A compelling play from Fringe First award winner Apphia Campbell.. This 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.
