Produced by Barney Josephson. Album Jazz at the Philharmonic. Strange Fruit Lyrics. About Strange Fruit. This song, written by Abel Meeropol and performed by many artists (but most notably, Billie Holiday and Nina Simone,) is a dark and profound song about the lynching of African Americans in the Southern United States during the Jim Crow Era. In the lyrics, black victims are portrayed as strange fruit, as they hang from trees, rotting in the sun, blowing in the wind, and becoming food for crows upon being burned. It was a protest song that Billie Holiday very bravely performed under grave threats and at high personal cost.

David Margolick, senior contributor at Vanity Fair, discusses his book Strange Fruit: The Biography of a Song. He takes us back to 1939 when Billie Holiday first performed, and then recorded, one of the most extraordinary songs of the 20th century. The book reflects wide-ranging interviews, from Lena Horne to Pete Seeger, all of which describe how they were affected by the song. The song, of course, is about lynchings in the south; the fruit are the victims.
