With the opening of the Fannie Lou Hamer Memorial Garden, several local activists and movement veterans decided that a Hamer museum was in order, a proximate place to feature her life and artifacts associated with it.  Overseen by Hattie Jordan, the museum also tells a far larger story, placing Hamer’s activism in the larger context of the fight for civil rights in the Delta as well as the state of Mississippi.
