Billie Holiday – Strange Fruit

Strange Fruit

What Is It?

The song Strange Fruit by the American Jazz & Swing singer Billie Holiday (Lady Day).

Strange Fruit

Here is how Wikipedia describes this song:

Strange Fruit” is a song written and composed by Lewis Allan and recorded by Billie Holiday in 1939. The lyrics were drawn from a poem by Meeropol published in 1937. The song protests the lynching of Black Americans with lyrics that compare the victims to the fruit of trees. Such lynchings had reached a peak in the Southern United States at the turn of the 20th century, and the great majority of victims were black.[2] The song has been called “a declaration” and “the beginning of the civil rights movement“.[3]

Meeropol set his lyrics to music with his wife and the singer Laura Duncan and performed it as a protest song in New York City venues in the late 1930s, including Madison Square Garden. Holiday’s version was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1978.[4] It was also included in the “Songs of the Century” list of the Recording Industry of America and the National Endowment for the Arts.[5]

In 2002, “Strange Fruit” was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress[6] as being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant”.

“Strange Fruit” originated as a poem written by the Jewish-American writer, teacher and songwriter Abel Meeropol, under his pseudonym Lewis Allan, as a protest against lynchings.[8][9][10] In the poem, Meeropol expressed his horror at lynchings, inspired by Lawrence Beitler‘s photograph of the 1930 lynching of Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith in Marion, Indiana.[9]

Meeropol published the poem under the title “Bitter Fruit” in January 1937 in The New York Teacher, a union magazine of the Teachers Union.[11][12] Though Meeropol had asked others (notably Earl Robinson) to set his poems to music, he set “Strange Fruit” to music himself. First performed by Meeropol’s wife and their friends in social contexts,[12] his protest song gained a certain success in and around New York. Meeropol, his wife, and the Black vocalist Laura Duncan performed it at Madison Square Garden.[13]

Jazz singer Billie Holiday vs the US Government?! Her song Strange Fruit, written by Abel Meeropol about the treatment of African Americans in the community, is what started the whole altercation. Especially when Harry Anslinger, the Head of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics got involved, he set out to ensnare the Idol any way he could.
