Ida B. Wells Versus Judge Lynch: The Anti-Lynching Trilogy
Ida B. Wells has been described as a crusader for justice, and as a defender of democracy. Wells was characterized as a militant and uncompromising leader for her efforts to abolish lynching and establish racial equality. Wells challenged segregation decades before Rosa Parks, ran for Congress and attended suffrage meetings with the likes of Susan B. Anthony and Jane Addams, yet most of her efforts are largely unknown due to the fact that she is African American and female. This book contains three separate works from anti-lynching activist Ida B. Wells. At the conclusion of the three volumes, the reader will find an array of photographs depicting lynching victims. This book contains the following works of Ida B. Wells: 1) Southern Horrors: Lynch Law in All Its Phases, . 2) The Red Record: Tabulated Statistics and Alleged Causes of Lynching in the United States, . 3) Mob Rule in New Orleans, .
