Ida B. Wells Is As Relevant As Ever 9

Ida B. Wells devoted her life to lifting up those without power. And her story resonates as much today as it did in her day. Michelle Duster is a great-granddaughter of Wells, and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the Civil Rights icon’s strategies for giving a voice to the voiceless and how they might be used in present-day America. Her new book is called “Ida B. the Queen: The Extraordinary Life and Legacy of Ida B. Wells.”
