Grade 5 Up–In 1962, when Fannie Lou Hamer was 44 years old, she was denied her right to register to vote and became a Civil Rights activist. Born the 20th child of rural Mississippi sharecroppers, she learned early on about injustice and racial intolerance. She and her family endured beatings and other indignities as they helped pave the way to equal rights. The author blends personal information with the events unfolding in the United States. Sandy Donovans Fannie Lou Hamer (Raintree, 2003) is similar in scope for a slightly younger audience. Laura Baskes Litwins Fannie Lou Hamer (Enslow, 2002) is more about Hamers life as an adult and activist. David Rubels Fannie Lou Hamer (Silver Burdett, 1990) was used as a source in this biography. Helpful where there is a need for biographies on Civil Rights activists, this book will help complete the picture.–Kathleen Simonetta, Indian Trails Public Library District, Wheeling, IL
