Ida B. Wells Is As Relevant As Ever

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.”
