The book is bright and colorful and teaches a great lesson This is an absolutely wonderful book on so many levels! I highly recommend it!

In this story, Ruby is planning a Birthday party for Grandma.

Nov 06, Chrissy rated it it was amazing. Assigned this for an African American history class; the first time I have done so. I assigned the introduction and "A Red Record. Students talked about Wells' use of statistics and case studies as well as why she chose to provide difficult and often gruesome details.

On their own, students also considered the broader context of turn of the century d Assigned this for an African American history class; the first time I have done so. On their own, students also considered the broader context of turn of the century discourses of "civilization. Previously, I had only read excerpts from Wells' writing.

As many of my students pointed out, A Red Record is not a pleasant read but it is certainly important in helping us to understand turn of the century race relations. In carefully crafted prose, Wells discusses the "supposed" causes of lynchings and argues that the reality was often quite different from the explanations provided by mainstream, white journalists. The introduction does a nice job of sketching out Wells' life and placing these writings in a broader context.

Aug 30, Okan Anuas rated it it was amazing. I was absolutely blown away by how brave, intelligent, and persuasive Ida B. Her anti-lynching pamphlets were bluntly truthful, logical, and fearless. The introduction by Jacqueline Royster was a must-read as well, giving context for Wells' editorials and explaining why her writings were and ARE so significant. For anyone who would like a clear look into the lives of blacks at the turn of the century, or learn about a woman and movement that has been swept aside, this collection of I was absolutely blown away by how brave, intelligent, and persuasive Ida B.

Sep 25, Morgan rated it liked it Shelves: I read the first half really closely, then recently skimmed through the last half.

I'll have to reread it more thoroughly at a later date, but Ida B. Wells was an amazing woman who really risked her life--literally, at some times--to uncover these stories that need telling. Lynching and the violence imposed upon African American citizens particularly during the century between the 13th Amendment and the Voting Rights Act is so disturbing.

Mar 05, Lillian rated it it was amazing. The big question my mind is why Ida b Wells is not a household word like Rosa Parks. Wells was an amazing, investigative, writer and worked hard to reveal and examine the awful plight and oppression of her people thru documenting and writing about lynchings in the Reconstruction era.

Her name and work should part everyone's knowledge base. This is a beyond depressing book to read. Aug 07, jewelthinks rated it liked it. Very important information contained in this book. Wells is the original SayHerName. She documented the victims of lynching to give voice and to document how their humanity was stolen by racist, irrational beliefs and alleged reasons are maddening.

Reference book to have on hand Not light reading material. This is by no means an easy book, but I would assume that anyone who would pick it up would be aware of that already. This book is an investigative and journalistic look at lynching, from back when lynch law was a common thing people were getting lynched, I mean burned alive, I mean hanged, I mean littered with bullets, and then pulled apart for souvenirs of this gruesome show, every other day.

Wells wrote about these true Southern Horrors with such cool-headedness, such deadpan delive This is by no means an easy book, but I would assume that anyone who would pick it up would be aware of that already.

Wells wrote about these true Southern Horrors with such cool-headedness, such deadpan delivery, with her own commentary serving as a sharp edge of wit like a nail left on your seat. She was threatened with lynching and castration, in the case of one sexist and confused lynch mob for this work, but she knew it was important. And she did something about it. I can't help but think that police brutality is the new lynch law.

Murders being performed and no one being acquitted of them. Sadly, this work rings relevant even now.
