After the office of the Memphis Free Speech newspaper was destroyed and a price put on her head, Ida B. Wells became an exile from Memphis, Tennessee in 1892. She went to New York City where she wrote and started speaking to large groups of people about the brutal realities of lynching. She subsequently spent several weeks in the United Kingdom during 1893 speaking about these realities. In 1894, Ida B. Wells returned to England where she continued to speak about the lawlessness in the United States. Her column, "Ida B. Wells Abroad," for the The Daily Inter Ocean newspaper and some personal correspondence provide a vivid picture of the challenges, triumphs, alliances and obstacles that Ida B. Wells encountered in her efforts to elicit support from the British to impact change in the United States. Michelle Duster, great-granddaughter of Ida B. Wells, compares her life experiences to those of her great-grandmother to highlight the challenges and progress of African American women born a century apart. Troy Duster, Ph.D., grandson of Ida B. Wells, adds historical background to the reason why global pressure was solicited in order to address the wide-spread oppression and terrorism faced by African Americans at the turn of the 20th century. Ida B. Wells (1862 - 1931) was born a slave in Holly Springs, Mississippi, but through a series of circumstances ended up traveling across the country as well as to Europe to expose the injustices against African Americans that were raging through the South. She was a journalist, teacher, anti-lynching crusader, women's rights activist, civil rights pioneer and one of the founders of the NAACP at the turn of the 20th century.

What a fantastic, illuminating book about a woman whose accomplishments and contributions flew under the radar for a very long part of our recent history. Mrs. Ida B. Wells was a"drum major for justice," (to use the well-known and very fitting phrase of Dr. King), utilizing her gifts to push the United States to be faithful to what it said on paper: that all Americans were entitled to equal protection under the law. Mrs. Wells spent the overwhelming part of her life advocating for equal treatment for African-Americans and fought back against a legion of false narratives concerning the impetus for widespread lynching in the South, thus bringing the light of truth to illuminate the darkness of deceit and racial subjugation. Mrs. Duster, who is the great-granddaughter of this American luminary, elucidates for readers a certain often overlooked and unknown part of her ancestor's legacy: her time spent abroad in England garnering international support for the campaign against the iniquitous practice of lynching and the Jim Crow System that permeated many of the states of the former Confederacy. The author chronicles the prolific writing, speaking, and advocacy that Mrs. Wells, who was a first-class investigative reporter, did abroad to help to put public pressure on the U.S government to take statutory action and offer protection against the suppression of African-Americans in the South, suppression that was often done with the complicit involvement of local law enforcement officers. The author demonstrates a truth that Mrs. Wells knew and that many leaders after her time learned: international pressure can often be the catalyst for needed legislative action. We saw this recently with the Trump Administration's concession to international pressure concerning the separation of parents and children at the border.
I highly recommend this very interesting book, especially for those who want a more panoramic and in-depth view of American history and of a courageous individual who became a voice for the voiceless. While Mrs. Duster is the subject's great-granddaughter, there was no trace at all of hagiography or idealization, but rather an empirical and revealing presentation of a remarkable American who left a legacy of significant change and relentless antipathy toward injustice, a heritage that bequeathed a myriad of gifts to future generations and upon which many subsequent civil rights leaders built.
Sorryyy

"Ida From Abroad" helped me realize that journalist and civil rights activist, Ida B. Wells, didn't limit her crusade for justice to the United States. I was amazed that this young 32-year-old woman, who was born a slave, went to England to fight for the rights of African Americans during the 1890s!

Reading about the experiences that Ida B. Wells had while in England is a first-hand travel account to the challenges that were being faced at the time.

The descendants of Ida B. Wells (Troy and Michelle Duster) give great perspective of the historical realities and the connection between the past and the present.

Very inspiring!
