Fannie Lou Hamer Arrested and Beaten in Winona, Mississippi [VIDEO]

1 Posted by - September 8, 2019 - CIVIL RIGHTS, Video

On June 9, 1963, Fannie Lou Hamer and other civil rights activists were traveling on a Greyhound bus, returning from a voter registration workshop in South Carolina. Despite threats from the bus driver that he would notify police at the next stop, the group remained in the “white” section of the bus. When they arrived at the Winona depot, they also sat at the “white only” lunch counter. The activists were arrested and taken to jail.

White jailers forced two African American prisoners to beat Hamer. She was severely beaten and nearly killed, but continued to be a activist for civil rights.

Hosted by D’Army Bailey, Moments in Civil Rights History is produced by Comcast in collaboration with the Equal Justice Initiative and is part of the His Dream, Our Stories project. Visit His Dream, Our Stories where you can add to the collection of civil rights stories.

    Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    Nevertheless imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website
    could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its field.
    Excellent blog!
