Prison Culture » Erasing Fannie Lou and Other Black Women Victimized By Police…

After being arrested with other Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) activists for desegregating a restaurant, Hamer received a savage and sexually abusive beating by the Winona police. “You bitch,” one officer yelled, “we going to make you wish you was dead.” He ordered two black inmates to beat Hamer with “a long wide blackjack,” while other patrolmen battered “her head and other parts of her body.” As they assaulted her, Hamer felt them repeatedly “pull my dress over my head and try to feel under my clothes.” She attempted to pull her dress down during the brutal attack in order to “preserve some respectability through the horror and disgrace.” Hamer told this story on national television at the Democratic National Convention in 1964 and continued to tell it “until the day she died,” offering her testimony of the sexual and racial injustice of segregation.’”(p.910)

"Can we please STOP saying “the time to act is now” and “the current issues” marginalized communities and womyn are facing. Its a perpetuation of what media feeds us as to whats important. As if patriarchy DIDN’T precede western imperialism by thousands of years. As if colonialism and racism DIDN’T happen. #OPPRESSIONISNOTATREND so don’t treat it like one."
