On this day in 1939, Billie Holiday recorded the song Strange Fruit. It has a bitter legacy: the most famous song about lynching in America.
 
Today on the Radio Diaries podcast, we're bringing you our documentary, Strange Fruit. It's about James Cameron, the only man known to have survived a lynching.
 
We're running this story on our podcast in recognition of the nation's first lynching memorial, built by the Equal Justice Initiative, which is opening in Montgomery, AL, next week.
 
Listen
 
 
And - for our fans in NYC - Radiotopia is doing an EXTRA LIVE SHOW at the Murmrr Theater in Brooklyn, NY on May 10! This is in addition to the show at Town Hall on May 12. So get your tickets today. We are collaborating with the incredible Dusty Studio on an animation that you can only see on the Radiotopia Live East Coast Tour. You don't want to miss it.
 
Thanks for listening,
 
Joe and the Radio Diaries Team
