Description: Ida B. Wells was an extraordinary woman. Long before boycotts, sit-ins, and freedom rides, Ida B. Wells was hard at work to better the lives of African Americans. An activist, educator, writer, journalist, suffragette, and pioneering voice against the horror of lynching, she used fierce determination and the power of the pen to educate the world about the unequal treatment of blacks in the United States. Award-winning author Walter Dean Myers tells the story of this legendary figure, which blends harmoniously with the historically detailed watercolor paintings of illustrator Bonnie Christensen.
Ashay says, "Thank you Mr. Meyers for writing this book. There has been a need for this book so that young people can begin to learn and try to understand "lynching" as part of America’s horrible past. Looking back Ida B. Wells had to be fierceless, much like Harriet Tubman. Also included in the back of the book is a timeline of events in Ms. Wells extraordinary life. Bring this one in and teach! Buy it for your classroom and library!"
