FANNIE The Life and Music of Fannie Lou Hamer
PREVIEW CONCERT: “Fannie” Scenes and Sounds

FANNIE

The Music and Life of Fannie Lou Hamer

Dates: June 14th – July 10th, 2022
Playwright: Cheryl L. West

Fannie Lou Hamer was the baby of her family, who were sharecroppers with 19 children before her. After working on plantations for most of her adult life, she joined the Civil Rights movement. Three years after attending a rally, she co-founded a new political party to advocate for Black voting rights. Involuntarily sterilized, robbed of her possessions, and beaten in jail, Fannie Lou Hamer was not deterred. This play with music has a cast of one, in recognition of the sheer power of Fannie Lou Hamer’s will.

True Colors Theatre Sankofa Seasons: "Sankofa Bird" by Aaron Henderson

SANKOFA SEASONS

“Go Back and Get It”

Inspired by the legacies of foundational Black theaters and their trailblazing leaders, True Colors seeks to continue in their legacies as we prepare to positively affect the future of the American Theatre. Over the next three years, True Colors is committing to revisiting their histories and uplifting the Black storytellers that have guided us to this moment. Similarly, we commit to birthing new Black narratives that will have a lasting impact on the way future communities understand and celebrate themselves. This idea, returning to retrieve information from our past, is best understood in the concept of Sankofa.
