Fuller was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, a city known for its history of degradation and dehumanization of black people during the Civil Rights Movement. He is the nephew of Audrey Faye Hendricks, the youngest child arrested in the Civil Rights Movement at eight years old. His family not only participated in the movement but risked their bodies, economic security, and lives fighting for equal rights. His aunt is no longer here, but he controls the memory of her, and she told him to never let our struggle fade into history.
