It’s Pride Weekend in Louisville, so we won’t type your ear off. But please enjoy this episode of Strange Fruit where we talk about music as an agent of social change. We meet musician Arro Verse, whose pro-marriage-equality song “Marry Me” has been used in political campaigns, and hip-jop scholar Dr. Justin Burton. We also talk about our own favorite protest songs, and check in with some of our favorite fruitcakes about theirs. Happy Pride, y’all!
