Rep. Norton on the Festival


“The Civil Rights Movement occurred pre-feminism, but it is time we celebrated the extraordinary women who were central to the movement,” Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton said. “None were more courageous than Fannie Lou Hamer, and I have yet to see her equal in rallying a crowd to move forward in the face of danger. The March on Washington Film Festival has shown it recognizes the importance of Ms. Hamer’s contributions by making this film of her life the first film to be screened at the festival.” LINK
