Fannie Lou Hamer:  This Little Light...

Fannie Lou Hamer: This Little Light...

Add'l material by: Billie Jean Young 


Billie Jean Young channels the passion and humanity of Fannie Lou Hamer, a sharecropper from Mississippi who held the nation spellbound as she detailed for the 1964 Democratic National Convention the atrocities she endured fighting for her rights. It was the first time a rural black woman spoke for herself, and for the poor, at the national level. Young lives and breathes the role, reenacting the event in this one-woman performance."
