From the book’s introduction:

“Ida B. Wells-Barnett has gone from mid-20th century Africana Studies obscurity to a major 21st Century subject in Women’s Studies and the history of Black American media.

Her life was much more complex than the one paragraph portrait written of her: Black journalist, anti-lynching crusader. She was first and foremost a mother and wife. She was also a local Chicago community activist for decades.”
