Four artists buy the house Nina Simone was born in

Four African-American artists have paid 95,000 dollars for the house Nina Simone was born in.

Simone died in 2003, at 70, but remains one of America's most famous jazz musicians and a potent symbol of the civil rights era.

Conceptual artist Adam Pendleton explains why they bought the small three-room property in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
