Rodney Singleton (Rev. Hill, matinee and evening) A native of Mississippi, Rod did not have to learn about Fannie Lou Hamer to research his role in Fannie Lou. He already knew about her heroic efforts to promote voting rights, as well as the culture in which those efforts took root. Rodney has been seen in a number of New York productions, but among the Morehouse graduate's most impressive talents is his singing voice.
