20211013 Nicole Sandler Show- Revisiting Fannie Lou's Fight for Voting Rights with Keisha N. Blain
/

As part of their assault on our democracy, we’re watching today’s Republican Party lie, cheat, steal and gaslight their way into taking away your vote. We’ve gone over their plan of attack many times by now, so you don’t need me to recount it again. What these times call for is a review of what it took to win the right to vote, fought so valiantly by women and Blacks whose names many of us no longer remember. Time to fix that! Today, I’m joined on the show by historian and author Keisha N. Blain, author of the new book ‘Until I Am Free: Fannie Lou Hamer’s Enduring Message to America”. Everyone needs to know her story. Hopefully today’s show will help toward that end.
