Through social analysis, Ida Wells exposed lynching as part of a larger framework of subjugation in which white people used violence as a deliberate tactic to combat black economic progress in the southern USA. Wells established herself as an advocate for social justice and human dignity by combining irrefutable evidence with deeply personal emotional appeal. In this collection, Wells's anti-lynching crusade comes alive.
