9780143106821: The Light of Truth (Penguin Classics)

In this collection, Wells's anti-lynching crusade comes alive. Through brilliant social analysis, she exposed lynching as part of a larger framework of subjugation in which white people used violence as a deliberate tactic to combat black economic progress in the southern USA. Wells won international renown for her investigative journalism, leading her on lecture tours around the Northern States and Europe, where she rallied support against lynching.

Wells established herself as an advocate for social justice and human dignity by combining irrefutable evidence with deeply personal emotional appeal.

This volume is edited and introduced by Wells biographer Mia Bay.

Review:

"Wells was the most comprehensive chronicler of that common practice for which few words exist that provide sufficient condemnation. For that reason, and for Wells' immense courage, clear pen, and understanding of the nature of journalistic advocacy, this new volume ought to become required reading for anyone interested in American history or current affairs."--"Flavorwire" "An enlightening read, this collection will inspire anyone who still believes that journalism can be a voice for the voiceless."--Bust Magazine "Ida B Wells stands out because she insisted on seeing."--Ta-Nehisi Coates

About the Author:

Born a slave in Mississippi in 1862, Ida B. Wells began a career as a journalist reporting on major social and political issues. After the lynching of a close friend, she devoted the rest of her life to civil rights, becoming a co-founder of the NAACP.

Mia Bay is the author of two books on African American history and a biography of Ida B. Wells.
