Jacksonville, FL, October 20, 2020 --(PR.com)-- Ida B. Wells-Barnett has been reduced to a paragraph in history, in reality she is one of the most iconic figures in American history. Ida B. Wells is known for her anti-lynching crusade and suffrage but most people don't know the particulars. The book "Reporting Live from Jim Crow Ida B. Wells" gives readers a fresh take on the story.
"I actually tell the story of Ida B. Wells in a different way, I begin with her origin story, which is actually a disputed election in 1876 between Rutherford B. Hayes and Samuel Tilden. Elections have consequences. I think many on the political left and right wanted her removed from history because of her pro 2nd Amendment stance. I would love to revive her and maybe even generate enough interest to get her to the big screen one day."
