This #StrangeFruitMOTD highlights “Dammit Wesley,” a visual artist from Charlotte, NC. “One of his most iconic murals ... named ‘Strange Fruit’ is a nod to the words from the songs [popularized] by Nina Simone and Billie Holiday.
When his artwork leads to one or many powerful conversations, Wesley said it feels somewhat like mission accomplished.
'I hope whatever I do today continues to create a highway for many other artists like me to tell their stories,' Wesley said."
