Fannie Lou Hamer

Fannie Lou Hamer

“You can pray until you faint, but unless you get up and try to do something, God is not going to put it in your lap.”

Civil rights leader, women’s rights advocate, and farmer. She was extorted, threatened, harassed, shot at, and assaulted by white supremacists and police while trying to register for and exercise her right to vote. But she kept going and kept singing.
