Ida B Wells. What a woman. Born in slavery she became one of the most famous women in America, a bold investigative journalist and outspoken activist for the Civil Rights of African-Americans and women, founding her own newspaper as well as co-founding the NAACP. Ida B Wells wrote about segregation and racial inequality, ultimately focusing her brilliant mind and fearless heart on the scourge of lynching, the unpunished murders of black men and women in America. She was viciously attacked for speaking out about “racial terrorism”, as she named it, but it didn’t stop her. In 2020 Ida B Wells was posthumously awarded the Pulitzer Prize for her groundbreaking work and its legacy. Erin Aubry Kaplan tells us the story, beautifully capturing the spirit of this powerfully determined woman.
