On-Demand Video Series: How one journalist risked her life to hold murderers accountable – Christina Greer
Mon, April 10 | OPEN HOURS
Ida B. Wells was an investigative journalist, civil rights leader, and anti-lynching advocate who fought for equality and justice. In the late 1800’s, lynchings were happening all over the American South, often without any investigation or consequences for the murderers. A young journalist set out to expose the truth about these killings. Her reports shocked the nation, launched her journalism career and a lifelong pursuit of civil rights. Christina Greer details the life of Ida B. Wells and her tireless struggle for justice. Lesson by Christina Greer, directed by Anna Nowakowska.
