    Strange Fruit”, the song about black lynching in the south made famous by blues singer Billie Holiday, was originally a poem written by Abel Meeropol, a Jewish schoolteacher from the Bronx. It was a huge protest for Billie to sing this song to all white audiences, but she did, often facing angry shouts and walkouts from her performances. She risked her life to sing the truth. #billieholiday
