Members’ Book Club Book of the Month:
The May book club book is Crusade for Justice-The Autobiography of Ida B. Wells by Ida B. Wells-one of the founders of the NAACP.
“No student of black history should overlook Crusade for Justice.”—William M. Tuttle, Jr., Journal of American History
Ida B. Wells (1862-1931) was one of the foremost crusaders against black oppression. This engaging memoir tells of her private life as a mother of a growing family as well as her public activities as a teacher, lecturer, and journalist in her fight against attitudes and laws oppressing blacks.
