    Ida B. Wells (1862-1931) was one of the foremost crusaders against black oppression. This engaging memoir tells of her private life as mother of a growing family as well as her public activities as teacher, lecturer, and journalist in her fight against attitudes and laws oppressing blacks.

    "No student of black history should overlook Crusade for Justice."—William M. Tuttle, Jr., Journal of American History

    "[Wells was] a sophisticated fighter whose prose was as thorough as her intellect."—Walter Goodman, New York Times

    "An illuminating narrative of a zealous, race-conscious, civic- and church-minded black woman reformer, whose life story is a significant chapter in the history of Negro-White relations."—Thelma D. Perry, Negro History Bulletin
