Mississippi Goddam - Nina Simone

Released in 1964 as a single and boycotted in several Southern states, ostensibly because of the word 'goddam' in the title. The song is her response to the murder of Medgar Evers in Mississippi; and the bombing of a church in Birmingham, Alabama, killing four black children.
