Episode 6: Ida B. Wells
Journalist and activist Ida B. Wells is in some ways a forgotten figure, overlooked even in black civil rights history. But her reporting on lynchings across the South was unwavering in its mission: calling America out on racial injustice. And, why black women are no longer willing to play the role of â€œMagical Negroâ€ in U.S. politics. The United States of AnxietyÂ recentlyÂ recorded a live episodeÂ remembering the life and work of Ida B. Wells at The Greene Space. Watch the whole event here.
