An amazing woman, Ida B. Wells worked hard to better the lives of African-Americans long before boycotts, sit-ins, and freedom rides. Especially vocal against lynching, she used determination and the power of the pen to educate everyone about the unfair treatment given to African-Americans in America. This is an amazing story of an activist, educator, writer, journalist, suffragette, and pioneering voice. Watercolor illustrations are by Bonnie Christensen. Ages 5-9. 37 pages, softcover.
