Matthew, thank your for highlighting Fannie Lou Hamer and her tenacity for Black folk. She has always been my shero. She put the demoncrats on blast and it worked! She was not to be denied as she spoke out for us. Like Fannie Lou, "I'm sick nd tired of being sick and tired" of our experiences being overlooked, much as the founders did. I appreciator your diving in and showing who we've been and the shit with which we've had to deal. Children today will not have that luxury of learning...
