Fannie

Streaming Jan 28 - Feb 1

Fannie is a captivating call to action and look at the impassioned freedom fighter, Fannie Lou Hamer, who became one of the most powerful female voices of the civil and voting rights movements.

Join Artistic Director Braden Abraham as he leads an in-depth discussion with the artists about the legacy of Fannie Lou Hamer, the role of music in her life, and how this fearless group of artists adapted Fannie to be performed in Chicago parks. Plus, enjoy exclusive performances from this highly anticipated project.

E. Faye Butler is so passionate and so compelling as Fannie Lou Hamer... I think you're going to see a woman's story that still resonates today.
