    One thought on “The Light of Truth”

    1. A textbook for comprehensive activism and a vivid snapshot of the reality of lynchings in the Reconstruction South. The civil rights activists of the mid-20th century owe a lot to Wells. Plus, her exploration of white manhood seems to me a precursor of current gender psychology literature. As do her ideas on the cult of womanhood. Wells is a must-read for students of African American history, gender studies, and the history of activism more broadly.-NS

    2. It took me all summer to read this dense book, but it is worth the effort. This is a collection of work by famed journalist and writer Ida B. Wells-Barnett. Most of the writing deals with her essays, columns and pamphlets protesting the lynch laws prevalent during her time, and her writing was an eye-opener for me. I know I’m not the only one but my “knowledge” (if it could be called that) of lynching was somewhat limited. I thought, and always had the impression, that lynching meant a spu [...]

    3. This was my reading for Black History Month and I tried to shut up and listen because it’s not my history. But I am gobsmacked that there has ever been, maybe still needs to be, anti-lynching activists. Lynching seems indefensible. The heart of the book is the fourth chapter, particular the section entitled Red Record. If the book gets a little repetitive or long for you, I recommend making sure you read that part.

    4. It's gets a bit repetitive because of it is a series of her writings roughly on the same topic over years and she does recycle a bit of her material - but that doesn't diminish the impact and importance of what she was writing about. An important figure in the history of civil rights who deserves to be read even now.
