Inspired by the life of famed civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer and performed and sung by Chicago’s E. Faye Butler, this passionate rally cry defines what it means to be a true revolutionary.
Fannie Lou Hamer, the 1960s civil rights activist whose courage, humor and grit reminds us that there's courage in the face of fire, hope in tomorrow and that we all have a stake in our country. Replete with music and spirituality, this electric, immersive call to action defines what it means to be a true revolutionary. A Goodman commission, Ms. West's play appeared in the 2019 New Stages Festival, and in abridged form, Fannie Lou Hamer, Speak On It!, in Chicago parks in fall 2020.
