Warrior Princess: A People's Biography of Ida B. Wells is the story of a young Black woman who decided to fight and protect Black people her entire life, and did so admirably. Ida B. Wells was a prominent journalist, activist, and suffragist who lived in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. She was defiant, courageous, and committed to her life's work. For that reason, she endured violent threats from racist white men, and was ostracized by many Black male leaders. She spoke, wrote, and organized. But more importantly, she learned to believe in herself and her mission. As Wells herself wrote: "Let the Afro-American depend on no party, but on himself, for his salvation."
