Billie Jean Young to speak at Eastern

Actress and poet Billie Jean Young will present at Eastern's University Hour Series from 3 to 4 p. m. on Feb. 29 in the Student Center Theatre. Young's presentation will include a performance of the one-woman show, "Fannie Lou Hamer: This Little Light."  The public is invited. Admission is free.

 

Young's captivating, award-winning one-woman show recaptures the breadth and majesty of Hamer's brave journey from a downtrodden field worker to a victorious champion of civil and human rights.

 

In 2004, to coincide with the Democratic National Convention, Young performed her re-enactment of the speech Hamer presented at the 1964 Democratic National Convention. Young is a resident of Perry County, AL, where she serves as an artist-in-residence at Judson College in Marion.
