Strange Fruit - Billie Holiday

This was sung for the first time in 1939 and graphically spoke to the racism of the era.  We often think of the civil rights movement as having started out of nowhere in the late 1950's but that was not true at all.  As and this song can attest, political statements were being made in segregated America long before the 1950's.
