Book Review “Until I’m Free: Fannie Lou Hamer’s Enduring Message to America” ​​by Keisha Blain

Blain suggested that Hamer could provide “a blueprint for addressing a wide range of contemporary social problems”. In chapters covering topics such as the need for truth, decentralized leadership, centered women of color in social movements, transnational solidarity, and the new poor movement, Blain assume that Hamer can tell us what to do. The author argues that Hamer’s core message was captured in a 1971 speech in which she stated that “until I am free, neither are you.” So the freedom of the poor Negroes of Mississippi was for the benefit of others, and the reverse was also true. Blain argues that solidarity in social movements and willingness to act are Hamer’s real legacy.
