Fannie: The Music and Life of Fannie Lou Hamer @ Seattle Rep (Seattle Center)
By Cheryl L. West
Directed by Henry Godinez
Part theater, part revival, and all power – this one-woman show with music will have your head nodding and hands clapping from start to finish.
Fannie: The Music and Life of Fannie Lou Hamer tells the impassioned story of American civil rights activist and hero, Fannie Lou Hamer. From her humble origins as the daughter of a Mississippi sharecropper, to co-founding the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party and demanding recognition at the National Democratic Convention, hers is a story of justice that will not be denied.
A co-commission with Goodman Theatre.
Location: Seattle Center (Mercer side)
