East of East Nashville, Hermit in Hermitage
Michael,Thanks for visiting my blog, and the Nina Simone recommendation. I had no idea she had an autobiography...I'll definitely check it out.As for the song "Strange Fruit", I know that Nina does a cover of this song. It was original written in 1939 by Abel Meeropol, a schoolteacher in NYC.The song became notorious through the performances of Billie Holiday, who popularized it.
