Ida B. the Queen: The Extraordinary Life and Legacy of Ida B. Wells
by Michelle Duster Author
Ida B. Wells was a journalist, activist, and suffragist who committed herself to the needs of those who did not have power. In the eyes of the FBI, this made her a “dangerous negro agitator.” In the annals of history, it makes her an icon and a hero. Ida B. the Queen tells the awe-inspiring story of an pioneering woman who was often overlooked and underestimated—a woman who refused to exit a train car meant for white passengers; a woman brought to light the horrors of lynching in America; a woman who cofounded the NAACP. Written by Wells’s great-granddaughter Michelle Duster, this highly visual book, full of photos, timelines, and newspaper clippings, brings her history to life in a visually compelling way.
