Ida B. Wells was a teacher, journalist, and newspaper editor who led the most dynamic anti-lynching campaign in American History. In doing so, she challenged the intersection of white supremacy, patriarchy, and the meaning of civilization in the early 20th century.
Newly edited and introduced by Matthew Quest, this book collects the often overlooked pamphlets Lynch Law in Georgia, Mob Rule in New Orleans, The East St. Louis Massacre, and The Arkansas Race Riot. These pamphlets reflect Wells's transition toward viewing lynchings as attacks on the potential of insurgent Black workers who defended and organized themselves for emancipation, placing Wells's anti-lynching crusade in conversation with the labor movement and later movements for Black Power, and anti-fascism.

"Ida B. Wells offers a model of radical intellectual activism that a new generation needs to know about...Lynch Law in Georgia and Other Writings brings forward again the work of a Black woman activist who provided leadership for a number of allied struggles for women's rights and Black human rights." --Carole Boyce Davies, author of Left of Karl Marx: The Political Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones and editor of Claudia Jones: Beyond Containment.
"This powerfully written and politically unapologetic introduction by Matthew Quest transforms our understanding of Ida B. Wells's crusade against lynching and passion for justice. Quest appreciates Wells as one of the most radical black activist-intellectuals of her day, who understood white supremacy, racial terror, and empire as foundational to American civilization and that the struggle for the full freedom of African Americans and democracy required in no uncertain terms transformative social change. What an important lesson for us today." --Erik S. McDuffie, author of Sojourning for Freedom: Black Women, American Communism, and the Making of Black Left Feminism.
