Do You Know – Fannie Lou?

So now you know or are reminded of who Anthony Soltero is, but do you know who Fannie Lou Hamer is?

I’ll give you a hint: I picked her because it is election season.

  1. “I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.” :)She was a civil right activist, involved in SCLC, I believe… I’m digging deep into my politics of protest course in undergrad about ten years ago.

  2. I remember her televised singing of “Go Tell It on the Mountain” during the Civil Rights movement. I doubt her name comes up in many Women’s Studies courses (or Africana Studies ones for that matter).

  3. Big Big Smiles to you all from the Prof! I am so glad to see people remember her. When I picked her, I had the Sweet Honey and the Rock song in my head.🙂
