Last weeks lesson with my older students on lynching was very difficult for one of my students to swallow. The other 3 took in all in and were very mature in their approach to understand the history behind it. I was impressed with how much they enjoyed the music by Bessie Smith's "Strange Fruit." They tried to really understand the words and were moved by it.
