In July 1972, Fannie Lou Hamer traveled to the Democratic National Convention in Miami Beach, Florida despite her deteriorating health. Hamer’s health took a turn for the worse in January of that year, when she collapsed from “nervous exhaustion” as she walked a picket line near her home. She convalesced over the next seven months. This chapter reproduced Hamer’s “speech” delivered at the 1972 Democratic National Convention in Miami Beach. It was actually a seconding speech for the nomination of Texas’s Frances Farenthold as vice presidential candidate.
