Tune in on April 7 to WKCR 89.9 FM for a full day of Billie Holiday's music. Born in 1915 Baltimore, Holiday grew up during the prominence of Jazz legends Louis Armstrong, Bessie Smith, and the growth of Swing Jazz. With a haunting voice at once filled with Jazz cool and melancholy, Billie Holiday was beautiful in her music, and exemplified the harsh state of racial inequality, and misogyny.
