A Voice That Could Stir an Army
- Fannie Lou Hamer and the Rhetoric of the Black Freedom Movement
- By: Maegan Parker Brooks
- Narrated by: Kristyl Dawn Tift
- Length: 13 hrs
A sharecropper, a warrior, and a truth-telling prophet, Fannie Lou Hamer (1917-1977) stands as a powerful symbol not only of the 1960s black freedom movement, but also of the enduring human struggle against oppression. This is a rhetorical biography that tells the story of Hamer's life by focusing on how she employed symbols - images, words, and even material objects such as the ballot, food, and clothing - to construct persuasive public personae, to influence audiences, and to effect social change.
