Fannie Lou Hamer's America Project
American Politics | Journalism Studies
The School of Journalism and New Media’s Common Ground Committee partnered with the Mississippi Scholastic Press Association (MSPA) to bring Dr. Pablo Correa to campus to discuss his work with the Fannie Lou Hamer’s America documentary team. Fannie Lou Hamer’s America is a multimodal project, based on the civil rights activist’s life, that includes an original documentary, an educational curriculum, a young filmmakers’ workshop, and an interactive website. The project’s mission is to create a platform for Hamer’s voice in our modern time while addressing and promoting conversations about racial equity. This presentation will discuss the documentary, last summer’s workshop, as well as the longer-range vision of the project.
