Film & Discussion Series: Ida B. Wells - A Passion for Justice

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the next event in this ongoing film and discussion series that may educate you, touch your heart, and inspire you to action to help dismantle racism.

This documentary explores the life and times of this African American journalist, activist, suffragist and anti-lynching crusader of the post-Reconstruction period. Though virtually forgotten today, Ida B. Wells-Barnett was a household name in Black America during much of her lifetime (1863-1931) and was considered the equal of her well-known African American contemporaries, such as Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois.

A brief discussion follows the screening.

Free & open to the public.

Co-sponsored by the Jones Library and Coming Together.
