Freedom Summer Lunch & Learn: Fannie Lou Hamer’s America

Freedom Summer Lunch & Learn: Fannie Lou Hamer’s America

2024 is both an election year and the 60th anniversary of the Freedom Summer project of 1964, when student activists launched a voter registration campaign to register Black voters in the Jim Crow South. In honor of this historic moment in civil rights history, Cook Library will be hosting a documentary screening of Fannie Lou Hamer’s America and discussion over lunch. Come join us for a discussion about activism, voting rights, and education.  

Cook Library, RM507.  Lunch will be provided.  Register HERE by February 16th
