The Fannie Lou Hamer Story; “I’m Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired”
Healing Through the Sound of Music featuring the multi-awarding production of The Fannie Lou Hamer Story proudly supports legislative efforts to make Juneteenth an official National Day of Observance like Patriot or Flag Day.
Juneteenth or June 19, 1865 is officially recognized as a state holiday or Special Day of Observance in 45 states and the District of Columbia. June 19, 2017, the United States Pentagon held an official Juneteenth Flag dedication ceremony. Legislation to establish Juneteenth as a National Day of Observance in America will be re-introduced for passage in the United States Senate, United States House of Representatives and on to the desk of the President of the United States. Our project supports the campaign to make Juneteenth a National Day of Observance in America representing the consummation of President Abraham Lincoln’s executive order, the Emancipation Proclamation.
Juneteenth, www.nationaljuneteenth.com is when approximately 2,000 Union soldiers arrived in Galveston, Texas to force Confederate slaveholders to comply with the presidential executive order decreed two and one-half years earlier, January 1, 1863. The freedom offered by the European American oppressor was limited for Black Africans and their ancestors who arrived bound and chained during the Maafa. We proudly announce the launch of The Fannie Lou Hamer Story 100th Anniversary Birthday Voting Initiative as the theme for Juneteenth Parades and Festivals International, 2017 – 18.
The National Juneteenth Educational Tour is managed by Healing Through the Sound of Music. Ms. Aimbaye channels Mrs. Hamer transfixing the audience in a riveting 60-minute journey of storytelling showered with eleven inspiring songs and a video montage of the Civil Rights movement. Ms. Aimbaye has the power of a warrior when she speaks and the voice of an angel when she sings evoking emotions with tears of joy and pain as well as sorrow and laughter. A critic once wrote, “When Ms. Mzuri sings God smiles and angels flap their wings”. The audience will experience the courageous spirit and determination of Mrs. Hamer’s emotional twists and turns in her triumphant quest for human dignity and freedom.

You deserve to be punished with several fists to your face! You’re nothing but a troublemaker! I’ve had enough of your Racist talk! You’d better watch what you say and to whom you say it! You may just end up in the hospital with several injuries or maybe on a cold slab in the local morgue! You’ve got a big mouth that needs to be slammed shut permanently!
Local morgue? Slammed shut permanently? These threatening words are taken from a letter sent to me by an anonymous white person. It was handwritten in black ink, covering both sides of a yellow sheet of paper torn from a legal pad. It is one of hundreds of letters, emails, postcards and voice messages I received — to say nothing of menacing discussions of me on white supremacist websites — after I wrote and published the essay “Dear White America” in December 2015 here at The Stone. What I had offered as a letter of love had unleashed the very opposite — a wave of white hatred and dehumanization.
