Not So Tangential

NPR ran a report this morning on “Strange Fruit” and how Abel Meeropol came to write it after seeing a newspaper picture of a lynching.

It’s at http://www.npr.org/2012/09/05/158933012/the-strange-story-of-the-man-behind-strange-fruit.

For more information, the Children of the Blacklist tab at www.dreamersandfighters.com has an essay by Robert Meeropol.
