By Cheryl L. West
Directed by Joy Vandervort-Cobb

Produced in partnership with

Kenny Leon's True Colors Theatre Company (Atlanta, GA) and

Actors Theatre of Louisville (Louisville, KY)

This powerful performance celebrates the indomitable courage of civil rights hero Fannie Lou Hamer—a leader in the struggle for voting rights whose activism was infused with spirituals, protest songs, and the conviction that nobody’s free until everybody’s free. Inspired by her life story and filled with her music, FANNIE is a hopeful rallying cry that honors the spirit of a true revolutionary.
