Civil rights leader Fannie Lou Hamer, spoke words that are all too relevant today. Mrs. Hamer would have turned 100 years old October 6, 2017. "Mrs. Hamer, Echoes" features archival recordings and excerpts from a new film featuring Hamer's contemporaries – themselves now elders, providing the context of her life and the lives of other sharecroppers in Mississippi, from a seldom-heard film produced for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, or SNCC.
