(Chautauqua) Fannie Lou Hamer Portrayal and Q&A: Raising Their Voices

July 29 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

This July, our Chautauqua living history series goes virtual as Maryland Humanities raises the voices of four notable women who took action to secure their right to vote.

Join us as Arthuretta Martin brings Fannie Lou Hamer (1917–1977) to life. Considered one of the most powerful voices of the civil and voting rights movement in the South, Hamer was outraged by efforts to deny Black votes, became a SNCC organizer, and co-founded the Mississippi Freedom Party to increase Black participation in the Democratic Party.

1:00 PM: Performance
2:00 PM: Q&A with Arthuretta Martin and Maryland Humanities Staff

The performance is free and will be available starting July 27. Please register in advance at the tickets link: you’ll be entered to win fun prizes!
