Fannie Lou Hamer "All The Way"

"Most prominent of all the women on stage is Myxolydia Tyler who, as Coretta Scott King, must endure one of J. Edgar Hoover's dirtiest tricks. But her larger role is as another woman of recent history you may have forgotten, Fannie Lou Hamer, tortured in jail (also in Mississippi) for registering black voters. Like Mr. Barnett's, her outrage may seem impertinent to powerful whites, but it couldn't be more urgent or important, even today." ST. Louis Richard Green
