Young, Gifted, and Black Wood Earrings.

"Overcome by the power of a photograph of American playwright and writer Lorraine Hansberry, [Nina] Simone was inspired to write the song “To Be Young, Gifted and Black,” named for a play produced by Hansberry at the time. The lyrics are some of Simone’s most captivating and proud. . .“To Be Young, Gifted and Black” became one of the most triumphant anthems of the black pride movement in the 1970s. Nina Simone, who died in 2003, leaves behind an extraordinary and unparalleled musical legacy, the likes of which may not be seen for some time." (Source)
