Voice of Freedom: Fannie Lou Hamer

Voice of Freedom: Fannie Lou Hamer: Spirit of the Civil Rights Movement is that rare book that pfreedomacks nonfiction, biography, poetry and gorgeous layered artwork to tell the story of Fannie, whose community activism and singing earned her “the voice of the civil rights movement” title. I’m not going to tell you much more, other than Carole Boston Weatherford and Ekua Holmes have created an instant classic to be read all year round.

“No one was gonna take my voice.”
