The Strange Fruit Collection vows to carry on the song’s legacy and fight in the complex battle toward racial equality by using the wine industry as a platform for political and social protest. The abhorrence of injustice serves as inspiration for many change agents. The unjust acquittal of Trayvon Martin‘s murderer inspired Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi to birth one of the most influential, catalytic social movements of the post-civil rights era: #BlackLivesMatter. Black Lives Matter is an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are still systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. It is an affirmation of Black folks’ humanity, their contributions to society, and their resilience in the face of deadly oppression. Black Lives Matter, the organization, is a member-led global network. Black Lives Matter, the movement, is a broad conceptual umbrella that refers to the critical work of a wide range of Black liberation organizations, sometimes called “the Movement for Black Lives.”
