A definitive portrait of the civil rights leader best known for her campaign against lynching practices discusses how her achievements altered the ways in which African-American women are regarded, in a profile that also covers such topics as her role in the black women's national movement.
"Paula Giddings's devoted and scrupulous biography is not the first study of this pioneering woman, but it is a comprehensive work that attempts to portray her as part of the progressive movement that emerged among the black bourgeoisie in post-bellum America."
Richard Lingeman, New York Times Book Review, 05/18/2008Review:
"Giddings set out to write a definitive biography and has succeeded spectacularly. Ida gradually brings us to see the world through Wells's eyes....We come to love this brave and wise woman."
