Andra Day & Lee Daniels
As part of the GRAMMY Museum’s Programs at Home series, Moderator Scott Goldman talks with Andra Day and Lee Daniels about the upcoming new film, The United States vs. Billie Holiday. The film details the 1940’s, when the US government targeted beloved jazz icon Billie Holiday as part of their war on drugs, to prevent her from performing her heart-wrenching ballad “Strange Fruit,” a blatant cry against lynching. The United States vs. Billie Holiday is directed by Lee Daniels, written by Susan-Lori Parks and stars Andra Day.
