Strange Fruit

This exhilarating documentary starts out telling the origins of Billie Holiday's haunting signature song "Strange Fruit" (actually written by a Russian Jewish immigrant). In the end, though, the film becomes an broad examination of segregation, racial justice and the brave souls who fought against the terror of African American lynchings in 1930s America. 57 minutes
