Until Everybody’s Free: Fannie Lou Hamer and the Women of the Civil Rights Movement
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
For International Women’s Day, join the Maltz Museum as we celebrate the life and work of Fannie Lou Hamer and other women of the Civil Rights Movement! Featured in This Light of Ours: Activist Photographers of the Civil Rights Movement, Hamer was an unstoppable force for justice, founding the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party and the Freedom Farm Cooperative, co-founding the National Women’s Political Caucus, helping to organize the Freedom Summer of 1964, and standing up her whole life as an advocate for the vote. Join us for a screening of Fannie Lou Hamer: Stand Up, followed by a talkback from Dr. Pam Brooks, the Jane and Eric Nord Associate Professor of Africana Studies at Oberlin College, on Fannie Lou Hamer and other Black women whose activism defined the Civil Rights Movement.
