Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.
Today in sheer respect and rememberance of those who suffered, the visionaries who went against the grain of a blatantly racist and hateful time, emerges Strange Fruits. A non profit organization catering to female youth, ages 8-18, dedicated to providing an alternative to the negativity in the streets and through media, by providing a positive alternative of self expression through The Arts, Poetry, (Creative Writing), and HipHop and by offering workshops, counseling, open dialect, AND SISTERHOOD to ensure that needs are met and questions are answered.
I get my 8 servings of strange fruit everyday!
