Who Was Ida B. Wells?

Born into slavery in 1862, Ida B. Wells was freed as a result of the Emancipation Proclamation in 1865. Yet she could see just how unjust the world she was living in was. This drove her to become a journalist and activist. Throughout her life, she fought against prejudice and for equality for African Americans. Ida B. Wells would go on to co-own a newspaper, write several books, help cofound the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), and fight for women's right to vote.

This exciting book from the Who Was...? biography series introduces middle grade readers to Wells' life as a civil rights activist, anti-lynching campaigner, and pioneering journalist. Illustrations throughout help capture her life and time period, while sidebars provide further details. At the end, a timeline and other biographical information encourages kids who are interested in learning more about this American hero.
