Some colored folks started singing a song right then, whispering the words in the gathering dark: Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck for the rain to gather for the wind to suck for the sun to rot for the tree to drop Here is a strange and bitter crop Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

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.
Strange Fruit. Billie Holiday. Strange Fruit”, the song that made her famous in 1939, is a protest song which exposed American racism and particularly the lynching of African Americans that occurred chiefly in the South but also in other regions of the United States. Her version of the song, nowcovered by many artists, was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 1978 and included in the list of Song of the Century by the Recording Industry of America and the National Endowment for Arts.

Bitches Brew was a turning point in modern jazz. Davis had already spearheaded two major jazz movements – cool and modal jazz – and was about to initiate another major change (like Davis' album Filles de Kilimanjaro, the album's cover also sports the phrase "Directions In Music By Miles Davis" above the title). Some critics at the time characterized this music as simply obscure and "outside", which recalls Duke Ellington's description of Davis as "the Picasso of jazz."

"LADY DAY"- BILLIE HOLLIDAY - "No two people on Earth are alike, and it's got to be that way in music or else it isn't music."
#BillieHoliday (Eleanora Fagan Gough, April 7, 1915 – July 17, 1959) was an American jazz singer and songwriter. Nicknamed Lady Day, Holiday was a seminal influence on jazz and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. Above all, she was admired for her deeply personal and intimate approach to singing.

Billie Holiday is iconic. Her idiosyncratic voice echoes an era. Holiday's recordings are evocative of a period best depicted in a novel like "The Day of The Locust." I feel I should be ironing my shirt while sweat drips down my forearms as a cigarette dangles from my lips an overhead fan whirls a hot breeze that makes the air dank with the odor of baked dust. I listen to her and I smell the sorrow and the sadness and I wipe the sweat from my untoiled brow. I listen and I hear history.

I heard this performed several times in New Orleans. It got me every time. So good! Louis Armstrong: St. James Infirmary
Louis Armstrong (August 4, 1901 – July 6, 1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana.
Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong was a jazz musician that sang vocals and played various instruments, including the trumpet as pictured. He performed solo and with other performers right up until his accidental death in 1971. Satchmo’s image was immortalized in this photo.
Louis Armstrong was one of the best jazz musician of the 1920's, He was a very well accepted for his muscic. I believe Louis was the the best musician of his time. This shows that African Americans were aloud to contribute in music.
#OnThisDay in #History: In the toughest part of New Orleans, a poor black family gave birth to one of the shining lights in the city’s history. Louis #Armstrong, who would go on to become one of the most popular figures of the Jazz Age, came into the world on August 4, 1901 in the Uptown neighborhood of Louisiana’s most famous city. http://www.mapsofworld.com/on-this-day/august-4-1901-ce-jazz-musician-louis-armstrong-born
Louis Armstrong (1901-1971), nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American jazz trumpeter and singer from New Orleans, Louisiana. Coming to prominence in the 1920s as an "inventive" trumpet and cornet player, Armstrong was a foundational influence in jazz. He was one of the first truly popular African-American entertainers to "cross over", whose skin-color was secondary to his music in an America that was severely racially divided.
