    Fannie Lou Hamer: This Little Light

    Presented by at RMTC Cabaret Theatre

    February 5 - February 6, 2016


    Fannie Lou Hamer: This Little Light

    Billie Jean Young’s transformational performance in this one-womans show is so personal, not only in its tapping of Hamer’s spirit – but in its stirring encroachment into the depths of our own hearts and minds. Just as when she lived, Fannie Lou Hamer will not leave you alone in this rarest of plays. Also written by Young, Fannie Lou Hamer: This Little Light has become a staple, an anthem, a regular refresher for the Civil Right Movement. As human rights have faced new challenges since the play premiered in 1983, Young’s capturing of Hamer’s message has remained as strong and timeless as ever. The two-act play is a narrative of Hamer’s life as an American voting rights activist and civil rights leader. Young is internationally acclaimed for this drama and has performed it on four continents, including in almost every U.S. state, multiple times.??
