Quotes from Fannie Lou Hamer

"To support whatever is right, and to bring in justice where we've had so much injustice."

"Nobody's free until everybody's free."

"We serve God by serving our fellow man; kids are suffering from malnutrition. People are going to the fields hungry. If you are a Christian, we are tired of being mistreated."

"Whether you have a Ph.D., or no D, we're in this bag together. And whether you're from Morehouse or Nohouse, we're still in this bag together. Not to fight to try to liberate ourselves from the men -- this is another trick to get us fighting among ourselves -- but to work together with the black man, then we will have a better chance to just act as human beings, and to be treated as human beings in our sick society."

"There is one thing you have got to learn about our movement. Three people are better than no people."
