The Light of Truth

Ida Wells (Author)
Available

Description

In this collection, Wells's anti-lynching crusade comes alive. Through brilliant social analysis, she exposed lynching as part of a larger framework of subjugation in which white people used violence as a deliberate tactic to combat black economic progress in the southern USA. Wells won international renown for her investigative journalism, leading her on lecture tours around the Northern States and Europe, where she rallied support against lynching.

Wells established herself as an advocate for social justice and human dignity by combining irrefutable evidence with deeply personal emotional appeal.

This volume is edited and introduced by Wells biographer Mia Bay.
