Devine Hamer Gray: A New American Musical (in development) tells the story of how three heroic American women, Annie Devine, Fannie Lou Hamer, and Victoria Jackson Gray, ran for congress in 1964 and nearly defeated the Mississippi congressional delegation. Their courage—and that of their daring Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party—is an untold, important narrative of the Civil Rights Movement.
