Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

Traces the life and legacy of the nineteenth-century activist and pioneer, documenting her birth into slavery and upbringing in the Victorian-era South, where she became a journalist and pioneer for civil rights and suffrage, in an account that also describes her determination to counter lynching activities. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.


Review:

"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, 05/18/2008

Review:

"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."

Glenda Elizabeth Gilmore, Washington Post Book World, 04/18/2008

Book Description: Amistad Press, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 135 mm. Brand New Book. Heralded as a landmark achievement upon publication, Ida: A Sword Among Lions is a sweeping narrative about a country and a crusader embroiled in the struggle against lynching--a practice that imperiled not only the lives of black men and women, but also a nation based on law and riven by race. At the center of the national drama is Ida B. Wells (1862-1931). Born to slaves in Mississippi, Wells began her activist career by refusing to leave a first-class ladies car on a Memphis railway and rose to lead the nation s first campaign against lynching. For Wells, the key to the rise in violence was embedded in attitudes not only about black men, but also about women and sexuality. Her independent perspective and percussive personality gained her encomiums as a hero--as well as aspersions on her character and threats of death. Exiled from the South by 1892, Wells subsequently took her campaign across the country and throughout the British Isles before she married and settled in Chicago. There she continued her activism as a journalist, suffragist, and independent candidate in the rough-and-tumble world of the Windy City s politics.With meticulous research and vivid rendering of her subject, Giddings also provides compelling portraits of twentieth-century progressive luminaries, blacks and whites who worked with Wells during some of the most tumultuous periods in American history. In this groundbreaking work, Paula J. Giddings brings to life the irrepressible personality of Ida B. Wells and gives the visionary reformer her due. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780060797362
