Description

This distinctive, memorable picture book for older readers tells the story of how the Billie Holiday song "Strange Fruit" came into being in 1939. This is also the inspiring story of two outsiders—a young black woman raised in poverty and the son of Jewish immigrants—whose combined talents created a truly unforgettable song.

Back matter includes full lyrics of the song along with context to help readers understand the history behind the song.
