Strange Fruit: Billie Holiday centenary | Reading Race, Collecting Cultures
Not until sixteen years later did Rosa Parks refuse to yield her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus. Yet 'Strange Fruit' lived on, and Margolick chronicles its effect on those who experienced it first-hand: musicians, artists, journalists, intellectuals, students, budding activists, even the waitresses and bartenders who worked the clubs. David Margolick is a contributing editor for Vanity Fair.
Prior to that, he was the national legal affairs correspondent for the New York Times. Max Schmeling, and a World on the Brink.
