Billie Holiday is one of the most beloved Blues singers in history, but like many Black icons who were carving out a career in the spotlight in the early 20th century, she had a life that was mired in conflict and hostility. Many had racist institutions and racist communities banding against them, but for Holiday, she had the U.S. government out to get her. Holiday’s glamorous career and life, as well as her conflict with the FBI, is the focus of Lee Daniels’ new biopic, The United States Vs. Billie Holiday.
