On Sunday, Dec. 4, at 6 p.m. ET, chromatic black and Capital B will host a virtual screening of “Fannie,” a film about the life and activism of civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer.
Following the screening, Capital B Atlanta state and local politics reporter Chauncey Alcorn will lead a panel discussion on the importance of Black voters in the Georgia runoff election, featuring actress Aunjanue Ellis, who stars as Hamer in the film. Other panelists include journalist and activist Jeff Johnson and Stephanie Young, the executive director of voting organization When We All Vote.
The conversation will hone in on the main issues bringing voters to the polls in the upcoming runoff election between Herschel Walker and Sen. Raphael Warnock in Georgia. What’s at stake? What will the outcome mean for Black Georgians and for the country? And how is Hamer’s legacy still resonant in the movement to build Black political power?
