Sammie Wayne Poe was born in West Point, MS in 1962. Sammie has written and performed his autobiographical one man show entitled, “Lawd Ham Mercy On This Nappy Headed Bastard.”
Lawd Ham Mercy, is a ride from the early 1960s to now and just like anyone else’s life, this story is about birth and death. It’s about joy and pain,; its about happiness and hopelessness. This story reveals that as a human race, we have more in common than we do differences. Lawd Ham Mercy!
