Ep.55 - Ida B Ragin'
Hey, friends!  This week, Lauren brings us the life and times of one Ida B. Wells!  Picture this, you're a young black girl born into slavery in the 1860's in Mississippi.  Childhood is tragedy after tragedy, and you're separated from your family at a young age by being sold off.  Then, after you're emapncipated, your begin a career in investigative journalism and begin to publish pamphlet after pamphlet calling out the horrifying and brutal treatment/murder of Black men/women in your community.  All of a sudden, you and your paper are a target!  What does a woman do in this case?  Well... luckily Ida knew :)  I promise this has a happy-ish ending!
