P&P Live! Kate Clifford Larson — Walk With Me: A Biography of Fannie Lou Hamer

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, September 1, 2021 - 6:00pm

 

This event will stream online as a part of our P&P Live! Series

Kate Clifford Larson's biography of Fannie Lou Hamer is the most complete ever written, drawing on recently declassified sources on both Hamer and the civil rights movement, including unredacted FBI and Department of Justice files. It also makes full use of interviews with Civil Rights activists conducted by the Smithsonian and the Library of Congress, and Democratic National Committee archives, in addition to extensive conversations with Hamer's family and with those with whom she worked most closely.

Stirring, immersive, and authoritative, Walk With Me does justice to Fannie Lou Hamer's life, capturing in full the spirit, and the voice, that led the fight for freedom and equality in America at its critical moment.

Kate Clifford Larson is the author of a number of books including Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero, and, most recently, Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter, which was a New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller. Larson has consulted on feature film scripts, documentaries, museum exhibits, public history initiatives, and numerous publications. She is currently a Scholar at the Brandeis Women's Studies Research Center.
