Read the true story of Fannie Lou Hamer, a Civil Rights activist who courageously stood up for the vulnerable and contended for the rights of unborn children.

Living in Mississippi, "Mother Hamer" left school at six and was subjected to the racist "Jim Crow" laws. She and her friends marched for the right to vote and became known as "the Freedom Fighters." Fannie was imprisoned and beaten but eventually was able to speak to the Houses of Congress in Washington, D.C. Having won the vote, Mother Hamer helped bring people out of poverty and stood up for the right of unborn children to be born and to be loved.

This beautifully illustrated children's biography of Fannie Lou Hamer (1917-1977) features engaging illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos. It is part of a series called Do Great Things For God, which is designed to show kids that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.

Download free extras, such as worksheets, to help children interact with the true story and think of ways in which they can also follow God and encourage his people today.

These stories can be read to young children or enjoyed independently by early readers. The free extras make these stories useful for homeschool, Sunday school, missions events, and more.

“Fannie Lou Hamer’s story needs to be told and I can think of no one better than K. A. Ellis to tell it. In this beautiful biography, we see how the gospel compelled this remarkable woman to share the good news of Jesus, pray for her enemies, and combat the injustice around her. May her story inspire us to do the same!”

Justin E. Giboney

President, the AND Campaign

“As a father of three, I know it’s important to provide children with clear examples of how Christian convictions drive believers toward redemptive work. K.A. Ellis beautifully illustrates how a deep faith in Christ inspired Hamer’s vision, courage, and perseverance.”

Kay James

Secretary of the Commonwealth of Virginia; President of the Heritage Foundation (2017-2021)

“I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! I have spoken about Fannie Lou Hamer in speeches, written about her, and admired her for years. The fact that another generation will have the opportunity to learn about this great woman makes my heart happy!”
