BIRTHDAYS OF THE MONTH



This month, we celebrate the birthday of our historical role model, Fannie Lou Hamer. She was born October 6, 1917 in the Mississippi Delta and died in 1977. She was a courageous Black woman who struggled to change the injustices of life in the south. She was instrumental in organizing voting rights and  cooperative farms in Mississippi.


We will honor as our present day leader, Jesse Jackson, born October 8, 1941. Rev. Jackson was instrumental in fighting against racial injustice throughout the 1960's, Active in every phase of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, he established People United to Serve Humanity (PUSH) and directed “Operation Breadbasket. In the 1988 presidential election -a source of pride for Black people everywhere, he was the most conscientious Democratic candidate for President until the election of the First black President some 20 years later
