Ida's crusade begins

Title

Ida's crusade begins

Description

Thomas Moss’s murder changed #IdaBWells’ life. Moss was a close friend & fellow business leader, and his death demonstrated that Black self-defense in Memphis was futile. Ida👇with Betty Moss and her children Maurine & Thomas Moss, Jr., who was born after his father’s death. 🧵

Everything that happened next is so massive, so awe-inspiring that squeezing it into tweets is too paltry to do Ida B Wells justice. Who would join me to read and discuss Mia Bay’s "To Tell the Truth Freely" and/or Paula Giddings’ "Ida: A Sword Among Lions"?

To whet your appetite, listen to Paula Giddings interviewed by @NPRMichel Martin on the late great NPR show Tell Me More. DMs are open - ping me if you’re interested in getting together for a video book club the week between Xmas & New Years.
