For the family of Fannie Lou Hamer, she was a woman of power and presence as a civil and human rights activist. But to Jacqueline Hamer Flakes, Monica Land, and Jimmy Lee Lacey, she was also so much more - a mother, a wife, and a friend who was loving and giving. The in-depth interview provides an intimacy to Mrs. Hamer's life, work and legacy that can only be told by those who knew her best.
