The Fannie Lou Hamer House is a socially just, urban oasis that is conveniently located in close vicinity to East Saint Louis and Saint Louis. The Fannie Lou Hamer House provides retreat and short term, creative stay space for artists and organizers as well as visitors to the area.
Inspired by the work and life of Fannie Lou Hamer, especially her founding of the Freedom Farm Cooperative, the Fannie Lou Hamer House provides an affordable space for changemakers and creatives.
We provide a space that nurtures the growth of the movement, one individual at a time. Small organizing groups are invited to hold their organizational retreats, and planning meetings. Traveling artists and organizers are encouraged to stay with us.
