“To commemorate Black History Month, Strange Fruit collects a handful of unusual, eclectic and incendiary movies—one from each decade, starting roughly at the end of the silent era through to the end of the Vietnam War—that, for one reason or several, hardly feel like they should exist. From Depression-era Christianist propaganda as high camp to a forgotten blackface-ridden comedic re-imagining of the first abolitionist lit classic to a Midwestern American Negro’s paean to Second City alienation as translated by a Frenchman in Argentina, these are movies that normally don’t make the Black Exceptionalist highlight reel but should.”—Brandon Harris, author of Making Rent in Bed-Stuy, Amazon Studios refugee, producer of things at I’d Watch That.
