RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 643569409 LA English T1 The speeches of Fannie Lou Hamer : to tell it like it is A1 Hamer, Fannie Lou., Brooks, Maegan Parker., Houck, Davis W., PB University Press of Mississippi PP Jackson YR 2011 SN 9781604738223 1604738227 AB "Most people who have heard of Fannie Lou Hamer (1917-1977) are aware of the impassioned testimony that this Mississippi sharecropper and civil rights activist delivered at the 1964 Democratic National Convention. Far fewer people are familiar with the speeches Hamer delivered at the 1968 and 1972 conventions, to say nothing of addresses she gave closer to home, or with Malcolm X in Harlem, or even at the founding of the National Women's Political Caucus. Until now, dozens of Hamer's speeches have been buried in archival collections and in the basements of movement veterans. After years of combing library archives, government documents, and private collections across the country, Maegan Parker Brooks and Davis W. Houck have selected twenty-one of Hamer's most important speeches and testimonies."--from Amazon.
