Wow. Fannie Lou Hamer could be speaking for lots of us today:

I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.

Funny how “that illiterate woman,” as LBJ characterized her, enraged the Democratic establishment then just as many Bernie supporters enrage them now for speaking truth to power.

LieparDestin, we need sig lines here!

Yes, sig lines, but you’re here!!! Welcome and so glad to see you.
By the way, for all who I met on TOS, could you explain your usernames? (I’m notorious for misunderstanding such things. Probably the only person on earth who furrowed her brow over what the heck tin yurls were.)
And some folks here are operating under different names here? Can you put your DK handle in your profile?

Lol, you’re not alone – I have no idea what tin yurls are either!

Yes! I want my sig line back! Written under it for a decade now.

Love that now I see that beautiful little bird on my tab for this site! Each and every day there are positive changes here in The Progressive Wing!

After my SS check gets here, a donation is winging its way to our new progressive home!

“We didn’t come all the way up here to compromise for no more than we’d gotten here. We didn’t come all this way for no two seats when all of us is tired. —Fannie Lou Hamer”

Thanks for posting this LD. I was 7 years old in 1964 and didn’t have a solid grasp on the racial or political turmoil that was brewing in our country.

Thank for for posting this LD. I have never understood why white skin means anything. All it means to me is that I got sunstroke many times in England and had to wear long sleeves in the summer (no sun screen then). The only sun tan I ever had was joined up freckles.

I had the great privilege of hearing her speak in 1968. It was a fantastic inspiration.
