Such lynchings had reached a peak in the South at the turn of the century, but continued there and in other regions of the United States. The great majority of victims were black.

Produced by Barney Josephson. Album Jazz at the Philharmonic. Strange Fruit Lyrics. Southern trees bear a strange fruit Blood on the leaves and blood at the root Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees. 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.
