If you are an ally of the Black Lives Matter movement and you want to help others understand the perspective of a Black man, ‘Strange Fruit’ by Just Win (vocalist/songwriter) and Erving Nineak is a way to “explain” it to them. Sometimes, we get messages clearly when we hear them in a song, or we watch a video. Nineak samples the protest song, which spoke to the unfortunate stories of lynched Black-Americans in the South. For Just Win, the song awarded ‘Best Song of the Century’; in 1999 sadly remains relevant as he narrates the demise of Black-Americans across the country today. It’s chilling and terrifying. To hear that a group of people should dress and behave a way to guarantee that they will live if they come in contact with a person or people who don’t see them as fellow humans is ludicrous. It’s scarier when you share that experience with the author/recording artist because you’re also Black-American, and one day, you might start a family and give birth to Black children of your own. It makes you think: Do I want to put someone else in this sort of environment, knowing that it isn’t fair?
