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

See lynching, soul clap
