In collaboration with the Chicago Park District, Goodman Theatre presents Cheryl L. West’s exhilarating Fannie Lou Hamer, Speak on It!, a FREE abridged version of West’s play Fannie—recently announced as part of the 2021 Season—in the community and parks for three weeks beginning September 17.

Featuring Chicago actor and singer E. Faye Butler, this electrifying call to action is inspired by the life of famed civil and voting rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer—and uses storytelling and music to remind us there’s courage in the face of fire, hope in tomorrow and that we all have a stake in our country.
