Strange Fruit

What is Strange Fruit?


1930s anti-lynching poem written by Meeropol, put to music and made famous by Billie Holiday. Provides possible basis for the name of hip hop group "Strange fruit project.

"Southern trees bear a "strange fruit"

Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,

Black body swinging in the Southern breeze,

Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees."

Meeropol, 1939
