Simone speaks again! ~ 2016 YouTube video of her explaining how the Women's Fund of RI came to be

Watch here. This is Simone at her best: pissed off and looking good. When you need a bracing reminder of who she really, truly was ... watch and listen. "It was the late '90s," she begins. "And I was just getting angrier and angrier...." Produced by the Rhode Island Foundation.
