Publisher's Summary

Despite fierce prejudice and abuse, even being beaten to within an inch of her life, Fannie Lou Hamer was a champion of civil rights from the 1950s until her death in 1977. Integral to the Freedom Summer of 1964, Ms. Hamer gave a speech at the Democratic National Convention that, despite President Johnson's interference, aired on national TV news and spurred the nation to support the Freedom Democrats. Based on the critically acclaimed 2016 Caldecott and Sibert Honor Book and winner of the Boston Globe Horn Book Honor Award, Voice of Freedom celebrates Fannie Lou Hamer's life and legacy with a message of hope, determination, and strength.

History not Taught in Schools🌹

I never heard of Miss Fannie, but I will make sure to pass her story on to family & friends. This story of the troubles and the inhumanity to other people need to be shared because if we don't remember the horrors of the pass we will be doomed to repeat them. I say never again. Know Thyself Peace🌹

great book

I recommend this book. The great lesson is to never give up. Even in the early 1900 she stood strange.

Freedom comes at a price

This is a great historical nonfiction book that explains clearly what African Americans faced in order to have rights in the country. What an amazing woman! A great role model for all young girls and adult women.

Beautifully written and read;inspiring!

My, my,my! This soul stirring rendition of Fannie Lou Hamers' story should be in all homes where history and justice is mlm important. The audio and the caldecott honor hard copy belong together. Every Delta should own this book as should all other households. A worker with a servant heart.

painful information.

painful information for anyone who has a soul. Hamer was often braver than anyone from her time.

Steller!

I loved it and listened more than once to a few chapters to get an understanding of how she must've felt to live through her experiences. I'm also sick and tired of being sick and tired and that motivates me as well!

Very Revealing

Loved it. opened my eyes to injustices blacks had to endure,just to get the right to be treated as equals.
Sad tale of the treatment of our ancestors, just to have the right to vote . There is so much blood on the hands of some white people.
