Verve Records is honored to receive a 2024 Clio Award for the video for Nina's “Mississippi Goddam (Live at Newport 1966)”

Inspired by the graphic diversity of protest signs from the civil rights movement to Black Lives Matter, "Mississippi Goddam" was animated by Paris-based director and illustrator Nevil Bernard using a mixture of kinetic typography, illustration, and digital hand-drawn lettering.

Other symbols of protest and participation - placards and pasteboards, campaign pins, and posters - illustrate how Simone's iconic protest anthem is regrettably still relevant today.
