    Mama, ooh, I don't want to die"

    Wrong and right
    Is the width of a thread from a spider's web
    The piano keys are black and white
    But they sound like a million colours in your mind..."

      - with a lesson plan :
      "This lesson focuses on Billie Holiday's signature song, "Strange Fruit," a protest song Lewis Allen (Abel Meeropol) wrote in 1938 about the ongoing and intransigent problem of lynching in the American South... Working in small teams, students analyze a variety of primary source materials related to lynching (news articles, letters written to or written by prominent Americans, pamphlets, broadsides, etc.) in order to assess the effectiveness of the anti-lynching campaign spearheaded by African-Americans."
