The Legend: Ms. Billie Holiday Billy Holiday was handcuffed to her bed while lying there dying. Harry Anslinger, the first FBI Director, notorious for his hatred of Black people, made it his job to personally destroy her, but Holiday refused to stop singing the song “Strange Fruit”. Under his direction, the hospital was ordered to stop giving her medical attention and treatment, so, as a direct result of that order, Ms. Holiday died within two days. Rest in Peace Ms. Billie Holiday, justice and revenge is coming.
