About this event:
Join local historian Momma Kemba for dramatic presentations of three important women from America’s history. Interspersed with moving songs - often written by the women she portrays - Momma Kemba’s performances are as entertaining as they are enlightening.
Despite facing violence, civil rights advocate Fannie Lou Hamer worked fearlessly to help register voters and speak out for justice, often bolstering the spirits of her colleagues through song.
