Happy Birthday Fannie Lou Hamer

Today is the culmination of Hamer Week on "The Blackman's Blog". I've spent this week recognizing one of the most powerful leaders that any community was fortunate to have. We were quite fortunate that Fannie Lou Hamer was awakened in 1962 and demanded that she and others of the black communities across this nation have full citizenship rights. Today, I end my salute by coming in her words, my voice from Indianola, Mississippi in 1964, We're On Our Way.
