    I can never forget the first time I heard it in Camp Gieger during Marine Corps RECON training. I was silent, frowning, and angry. Later that night, as I walked in the barracks, there was my friend, a white southerner with a rebel flag drapped inside the door of his wall locker. I felt ashame to be close to him. I felt ashame to be his brother.

    There is really no adequate way to describe this. It must be experienced. Once you do, you will want share it with everybody.

    An overwhelming emotional performance. This isn't something you rate. It's something you witness.

    The beautiful, graceful legendary Billie Holiday gives life to the painful reality of black life. The pain of the subject matter is illustrated in the creases of her face. She sings this song as if she was compelled, bound be a higher calling to leave this record of her experience and our national disgrace.

    Haunting and beautiful, classic American music. It should be required viewing for all high school students.
