“How can you be an artist and not reflect the times?"

This question -- as timeless as it is timely -- is posed by Nina Simone in an 1970 interview captured on tape and incorporated into Jazmine Sullivan’s chilling rendition of the music icon’s 1978 track, “Baltimore.”

The song appears on a tribute album connected to the upcoming documentary “What Happened, Miss Simone” to be released on Netflix in June. The music video for the "Baltimore" cover features archival footage of Simone and activist Angela Davis expressing their thoughts on the black experience in America. A montage of protests from the 1970s is interspersed with news footage from the events that have unfolded in the city in reaction to the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray, who died of injuries he sustained during an arrest last month.
