Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Crusade for Justice: The Autobiography of Ida B. Wells, Ida B. Wells, Edited by Alfreda M. Duster, 1928 (1970), United States, AUTOBIOGRAPHY

"...An outspoken and determined woman with seemingly limitless energy, Ida B. Wells began her crusade against the oppression of black people in 1884, when, at the age of sixteen, she sued the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad for evicting her from a first-class car...Ida B. Wells was a forthright woman who worked with many famous leaders of the early twentieth century, and she does not hesitate to blast her opponents and to praise those who earned her respect—including President Woodrow Wilson, Booker T. Washington, Susan B. Anthony, and Frederick Douglass..."

(E.B., p. 231)
