In Her Words, My Voice Fannie Lou Hamer
Fannie Lou Hamer would've been 100 years of age this week. Fannie Lou Hamer is my of my black ancestral heroines. Today, I honor her by invoking her words from August 1964 when she spoke before the Democratic Party's Credentials Committee seeking to get the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party seated as the true delegates of the State of Mississippi.
