Mary Mancini is the current Chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party. She moved to Nashville in the early 1990’s, and in 1992 she opened Lucy’s Record Shop, an all-ages venue and record store, on what was then a nearly deserted Church Street. In more recent years Mary has fought for voter’s rights as Executive Director for Tennessee Citizen Action, run for a seat in the Tennessee State Senate, and been elected as Chair of the Tennessee Democratic Party three times in a row.
On this final episode of Season One of My Fantasy Funeral, Mary and host Ryan Breegle discuss her grandmother’s openness about the tricky topics of politics and race when she was young, what concerns Mary the most about the direction the country is headed, and her fantasy for the anthem of the women’s suffrage movement to be sung by Beyoncé.
