MORE INFORMATION: Michelle Duster’s book tells the inspiring story of Duster’s great-grandmother, Ida B. Wells, a Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist who brought to light the horrors of lynching in America, co-founder of the NAACP, and a civil rights icon.

Forbes calls the book “visually stunning” and says that “…readers who are looking for bold, out-of-the-box, approaches to social change will undoubtedly be inspired by Ida B. the Queen.” 

Author Michelle Duster is a voice for social justice in her own right. She has written, edited, or contributed to eleven books. She co-wrote the popular children’s book, Tate and His Historic Dream; co-edited two books including Michelle Obama’s Impact on African American Women and Girls; and edited two books that include Ida B. Wells’s writings.
