The Strange Story Of The Man Behind 'Strange Fruit' : NPR

...It's been a while since my last post and while I try to stay away from politics, given recent events, the time of year, and the fact that all of us here are Billie Holiday fans, this seems like a good thing to share.

The Strange Story Of The Man Behind 'Strange Fruit' : NPR: "One of Billie Holiday's most iconic songs is "Strange Fruit," a haunting protest against the inhumanity of racism. Many people know that the man who wrote the song was inspired by a photograph of a lynching. But they might not realize that he's also tied to another watershed moment in America's history."

Thank you all for everything this year.

P.S. We miss you Kat. We hope you are well and prosperous.
