Strange Fruit
by Gary Golio and Charlotte Riley-Webb




Overview -

The audience was completely silent the first time Billie Holiday performed a song called Strange Fruit. In the 1930s, Billie was known as a performer of jazz and blues music, but this song wasn't either of those things. It was a song about injustice, and it would change her life forever.

Discover how two outsiders--Billie Holiday, a young black woman raised in poverty, and Abel Meeropol, the son of Jewish immigrants--combined their talents to create a song that challenged racism and paved the way for the Civil Rights movement.
