Abstract 

In this article, the author describes the work of civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer by interviewing her.  Hamer quickly rose to national prominence for her work for racial equality; she was awarded by various organizations and even received four honorary degrees.  Hamer became a “folk hero” to many poor, uneducated, and disenfranchised Americans through her leadership within the Civil Rights Movement.  In the interview, Hamer described the slight improvements in racial relations in Ruleville that she witnessed recently, but she also emphasized the need for the South to continue its efforts to change a segregationist culture.
