Fannie Lou Hamer, Speak On It!
Adapted by Cheryl L. West from her play FANNIE
Directed by Marshall Jones, III
Arrangements and musical direction by Felton Offard
Originally directed at the Goodman by Henry Godinez
Join us for an outdoor performance of the one-woman show, Fannie Lou Hamer, Speak On It! Part battle cry, part spiritual, this is a timely and poignant play that brings to life civil rights activist Fannie Lou as she leads a rally to fight for voting and racial equality. Her call to action was one that resonated with Americans in the sixties and is equally powerful today.
