Fannie Lou Hamer is specifically written to meet the needs of adolescents and adults who are reluctant readers. The photographs, maps, and illustrations reflect the text, making the words easy to decode. This high-interest, low-vocabulary biography is ideal for English as a Second Language or adult basic education students.

Fannie Lou Hamer (1917-1977) grew up in the South at the time of the Jim Crow laws. “Sick and tired” of being treated like a second-class citizen, Hamer overcame social and political barriers. She dedicated her life to rallying for equal rights and voting rights for black people.
