African-American journalist and activist Ida B. Wells played a major role in shedding light on the widespread practice of lynching in the United States. In this gripping account, Wells details the riots that erupted in New Orleans in 1900 following the death of a white police officer at the hands of African-American activist Robert Charles and which eventually resulted in the deaths of nearly 30 people, with hundreds more wounded.
