Summary
Despite fierce prejudice and abuse, even being beaten within an inch of her life, Fannie Lou Hamer was a champion of civil rights from the 1950s until her death in 1977. Integral to the Freedom Summer of 1964, Ms. Hamer gave a speech at the Democratic National Convention that, despite President Johnson's interference, aired on national TV news and spurred the nation to support the Freedom Democrats. Celebrates Fannie Lou Hamer's life and legacy with a message of hope, determination, and strength.
