We bring you Fannie Lou Hamer, Mississippi sharecropper, disrupting the DNC Convention in NJ.... Note from Barbara:

We’re looking at 1964 now. I'm firmly ensconced in my white privilege, busy settling our little family into Lakeland FL (NOT in my home state of AL), recalling with shame that bombing of the Birmingham church, Sheriff Bull Connor & his dogs, Governor George Wallace blocking the door at the University. I d0 not return to fight the good fight. I apologize for that…  My career of touring with 1-woman shows- white, of course, now, with Brenda’s help, (through our connection at Columbia Unitarians' Social Action group, & with  Reverend Barber: Brenda with Poor Peoples' Campaign; I went to jail with him in NC)  enables me to feature a Black woman I hadn’t even known about. Thank you, Brenda, for introducing me to  Fannie Lou Hamer.
