Ida B. Wells was a teacher, journalist, and newspaper editor who led the most dynamic anti-lynching campaign in American History. Wells’s work exposes how the public murder and mutilation of Black bodies by mob justice stood side by side with a degrading culture based on racial stereotypes and strict gender roles that institutionalized fear in everyday life. In doing so, Wells challenged the intersection of white supremacy, patriarchy, and the meaning of “civilization” in the early 20th century.
In honor of International Women's Day and Women's History Month, Ida B. Wells's Lynch Law in Georgia & Other Writings is available at a very low discounted price of $9.99 (that's 50% off!).
