Called "a dangerous negro agitator" by the FBI, and a "brave woman" by Frederick Douglass, an inspiring biography of the American pioneer by Ida B. Wells's great-granddaughter.Winner of a 2020 Pulitzer Prize Special Citation, Ida B. Wells was born enslaved in Holly Springs, Mississippi, in 1862. In this inspiring and accessible biography, Wells's great-granddaughter Michelle Duster tells the incredible story of Wells's life, including stories from her childhood in Mississippi, her famous refusal to give up her seat on a ladies' train car in Memphis, and her later work as a pioneering journalist and anti-lynching crusader. Overlooked and underestimated, Wells would single-handedly change the course of American history and come to inspire millions. Ida B. the Queen shines a bright light on one of the most extraordinary women in history.
