Fannie Lou Hamer's America

FANNIE LOU HAMER’S AMERICA

Directed by Joy Elaine Davenport

Mississippi sharecropper-turned-civil-rights-activist, Fannie Lou Hamer, is known for her  powerful speeches, soul-stirring songs and impassioned pleas for equal rights. In this film, she tells her own story – in her own words – through archival audio footage & rarely seen television  appearances recorded throughout her political and humanitarian career.
