When I liberate myself, I liberate you!
After a lifetime of agitating for civil rights on the highest platforms in our land, the incredible Fannie Lou Hamer is coming to a neighborhood near you to share her passion for justice – and maybe pass on a spark of her flame.
Know Theatre presents a traveling production that recreates Fannie’s famous civil-rights rallies. Fannie is bringing her pickup truck and her Music Man to a parking lot near you to share her journey from sharecropper to activist, sing her favorite old-school spirituals with you, and empower you to be the fearless firebrand she knows you can be.
The Know is partnering with The Greater Cincinnati Voter Collaborative to conduct voter registration drives at every pay-what-you-can performance.
All patrons will be asked to wear masks, and maintain a distance of at least six feet from those outside their party as often as possible.
10 words: To Hope is to Vote.
Run Time: About 45 minutes.
We’ll also be offering one livestreamed performance on a date TBA for anyone who is unable to join us live.
