Summary
In Ruleville, MS, in 1961, summers were scorching, cotton was still king, and African-Americans were shackled to white intimidation, poverty, and cruel injustice. Fannie Lou Hamer, a middle-aged sharecropper living on a sprawling plantation, had known no other way of life. That all changed when an invitation to a voter registration meeting came her way in 1962. This Little Light of Mine follows the life of this extraordinary woman, who dedicated her life to fighting for voting rights, and was one of the great heroines of the Civil Rights Era. Fannie Lou Hamer was an undeniable force against the white political establishment of the 1960's and she became a voice for the millions seeking the right to vote. Far too often, women of the Civil Rights Movement have been relegated to footnotes in history. Instead, this documentary shines the spotlight where it belongs, squarely on Fannie Lou Hamer, and celebrates her role in the Civil Rights Movement
