Refried Vinyl (among other things): "Strange Fruit" by Billie Holiday
Billie Holiday S, Anti Lynching, Holiday S Anti, Fruit Blood, Poplar Tree
Strange Fruit, a song by Billie Holiday, tells what really happened during this time and the way people saw it.
"Strange Fruit" is a song written by Abel Meeropol and performed most famously by Billie Holiday. The song is about the brutal oppression and lynching of African Americans in the U.S. South. Among the song's many references, the poplar tree is referenced, as it is the state tree of Tennessee, where the original Ku Klux Klan was formed in 1865.

In the 1930s, when Holiday was working with Columbia Records, she was first introduced to the poem “Strange Fruit,” an emotional piece about the lynching of a black man. Though Columbia would not allow her to record the piece due to subject matter, Holiday went on to record the song with an alternate label, Commodore, and the song eventually became one of Holiday’s classics. “Strange Fruit” eventually prompted Lady Day to continue more of her signature, moving ballads.
Southern trees bear strange fruit, Blood on the leaves and blood at the root, Black bodies 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 magnolias, sweet and fresh, Then the sudden smell of burning flesh. Here is the fruit for the crows to pluck, For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck, For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop, Here is a strange and bitter crop.

Best-known from Billie Holiday's haunting 1939 rendition, the song "Strange Fruit" is a harrowing portrayal of the lynching of a black man in the American South. "Strange Fruit" actually began as a poem by Abel Meeropol, a Jewish schoolteacher and union activist from the Bronx who later set it to music. Disturbed by a photograph of a lynching, the teacher wrote the stark verse and brooding melody under the pseudonym Lewis Allan in the late 1930s.
