Fannie Lou Hamer (born Fannie Lou Townsend; October 6 1917 – March 14 1977) was an American voting rights activist and civil rights leader. Her plain-spoken manner and fervent belief in the Biblical righteousness of her cause gained her a reputation as an electrifying speaker and constant activist of civil rights. She was instrumental in organizing Mississippi Freedom Summer for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and later became the Vice-Chair of the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party attending the 1964 Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City New Jersey in that capacity.
