nessoila_ Todo o texto desse livro é um engasgo, embora sua forma nada tenha com isso.

@cosacnaify trazendo um pouquinho de uma história do #blues, de #billieholiday e do movimento negro dos EUA. " Southern trees bear a strange fruit Blood on the leaves and blood at the root Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees"

It also has some great stuff by Al Jarreau, Chubby Checker, Bob James and David Sanborn, Percy Sledge, Linda Ronatadt, and Billie Holiday.

{ Strange.Fruit }
Number 1. #NeverForget the #mob #mentality of those that claim WE are #uncivilized. The #lynchings, the #murders, the #intrinsic #EVIL that exist within "THEM" seemingly soulless by #nature. The #blood of our #ancestors fill the soil of the #Earth which we walk. #NEVERFORGET
Originally recorded by #BillieHoliday and rerecorded by the great #NinaSimone the poignant poem #StrangeFruit was "originated" as a protest to #American #racism and written as a poem in 1937. The men in this graphic depiction of lynching are #ThomasShipp and #AbrahamSmith This took place in Indiana in 1930....
Southern trees bear strange fruit,
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant south,
The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,
Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,
Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,
Here is a strange and bitter crop.
