The picture that inspired the incredibly heartbreaking song "Strange Fruit" Sung by Billie Holiday : Southern trees bear a strange fruit, Blood on the leaves and blood at the root, Black body swinging in the Southern breeze, Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees. Pastoral scene of the gallant South, The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth, Scent of magnolia sweet and fresh, And the sudden smell of burning flesh!

The lynching of black men, widespread throughout the U.S. but most common in Southern states, struck a dissonant chord within New York City schoolteacher Abel Meeropol. His grim protest poem "Strange Fruit," published in 1937 under the pseudonym Lewis Allan, attempted to capture the haunting spectacle of lynched bodies hanging from trees.
