Recorded by jazz legend Billie Holiday in 1939, "Strange Fruit," is considered to be the first significant song of the civil rights movement and the first direct musical assault upon racial lynchings in the South. Originally sung in New York's Café Society, these revolutionary lyrics take on a life of their own in this revealing account of the song and the struggle it personified.
