Fannie Lou Hamer: Performance and Q&A

This month, Maryland Humanities’ living history series goes virtual as the organization raises the voices of four notable women who took action to secure their right to vote. Arthuretta Martin brings Fannie Lou Hamer (1917–1977) to life. Considered one of the most powerful voices of the civil and voting rights movement in the South, Hamer was outraged by efforts to deny Black votes, became a SNCC organizer, and co-founded the Mississippi Freedom Party to increase Black participation in the Democratic Party.

This event takes place online.
