This Little Light of Mine: The Life of Fannie Lou Hamer Rating:

In this award-winning biography of Fannie Lou Hamer, people can learn more about this little-known but tremendously influential civil rights activist. Fannie Lou Hamer was the first to volunteer for a voter registration drive — even though she knew the chance of violence. "The only thing they could do was kill me," she said later, "and it kinda seemed like they'd been trying to do that a little bit at a time since I could remember." Hamer would become integral to the Freedom Summer and would give an influential speech that President Lyndon B. Johnson attempted to suppress, but which won millions of people to her cause.

This riveting portrait also captures the determination and strength of Hamer and other women like her who risked everything for their cause.
