In Memoriam – Abbey Lincoln

The legendary jazz singer who believed in singing as a political act, died Saturday at the age of 80 in Manhattan. An actress, artist and composer, Lincoln’s music ranged from avant-garde civil rights era recordings to the equally powerful but more introspective recordings of her later years.


Here is a great tribute to her on NPR’s website!

Here is a great video of her singing.
