Description:

Join us for a virtual screening of SUNFLOWER: THE FANNIE LOU HAMER STORY featuring Golden Globe Nominee, Aunjanue Ellis, directed by Christine Swanson and produced by CHROMATIC BLACK.

Considered the midwife of our modern Democratic Party, the film is a moving portrait depiction of Fannie Lou's Hamer's testimony in front of the National Democratic Convention Credentials Committee on August 22, 1964.

Aunjanue Ellis, Writer, Sunflower says "When she stood on live television in front of the country and the world and said, "I am sick and tired of being sick and tired," she spoke directly to the unrepresented exhausted humans who needed to hear this the most...and forced the start of a seismic change in our culture. She is where it all started. Her journey is still our journey today."
