I got a beautiful postcard of Billie Holiday yesterday in Strange Cargo on Beale St. I love her, which most know.
She originally performed the illustrative and awakening song, "Strange Fruit," in 1939. I formed the illustrative and awakening event production company, "Strange Fruit," in 2009, 70 years later.
With Strange Fruit we are redefining the south while paying homage to the past. I think Lady Day can dig it.
